It’s Spring and the snakes are out. Thought I would repost this on the Snake Avoidance Class for Dogs.

Today George went to snake avoidance class at Desert Wildlife Services here in Tucson.
I was shocked when he just walked right up to the snake with no fear at all. The snake is muzzled.
After the training began, he wouldn’t go near the snake.
He was brought up to the snake to force him to get the scent good.
At the end of the class he did not even want to look at it.
We watched a Golden Retriever before George’s class began.
Here’s a photo with the rattlesnake muzzled.
Michael is a remarkable teacher. He is pictured above in the striped shirt. Along with his brother, they form a great team, not only training your dog, but calming them down in between the sessions with the snake. The whole process took less than 10 minutes. I think it’s the best $75 I could spend on my pet.
