George the Dalmatian Goes to Rattlesnake Avoidance Class in Tucson Arizona

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.

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.

You may visit their Desert Wildlife Services site to look at all their offerings.

  1. Great story on your blog. I posted a link to this one and hope it helps someone from getting bitten, or their dog. Now he know it is not okay for him, or me, to be around a Rattlesnake.
