How It Works

The snake avoidance process involves using LIVE Rattlesnakes, Copperheads and Water Moccasins (when available) that have been rendered harmless by removing the fangs and taping the mouth shut so the safety of your dog can be ensured. Using real snakes is absolutely the best thing to mimic a real outdoor situation.

Under the supervision of a trained professional, the dogs are introduced to the sound, smell and sight of the snakes. At a precise moment the dog alerts and shows an interest on these senses, heavy pressure is applied with an e-collar. The pressure from the e-collar is immediately let off when the dog turns away from the dangerous snake. The dogs associate the snake with delivering the correction and learn that looking at the snake is bad and getting away from the snake is great!

The dogs will be handled by the trainer and entire process takes about 10 minutes. To help further ensure your dog’s safety, it is also recommended to vaccinate your animals with the Rattlesnake vaccine and get snake avoidance training every year.
