Rattlesnakes are still active due to the mild weather and low precipitation, fostering an earlier and longer snake season.
If you enjoy activities that take you and your dog(s) outdoors, you and your pet(s) may be at risk for encountering rattlesnakes. And as the snakes keep moving in search of food and mates, they are ending up in peoples own backyards.
This training comes just in time for the opening of hunting season, while the snakes are still out, and will give dogs a head start for next spring which is expected to be equally as heavy with snakes as this year.
Cooperative Extension, in collaboration with Get Rattled, highly encourages pet owners to take part in this important Rattlesnake Avoidance Training Clinic.
