Rattlesnake Aversion Training for dogs


You and your dog could encounter rattlesnakes almost anywhere: your yard, local park, hiking trail, ranch, etc. Help protect your dog from a painful, costly and often deadly encounter with a rattlesnake! The staff of Natural Solutions are experienced dog trainers, animal behaviorists and naturalists. By introducing your dog to both juvenile and adult live rattlesnakes of the species found in your area, the trainers are able to use a remote training collar to provide an appropriate stimulation and effectively teach your dog to avoid the sights, sounds and smells of rattlesnakes. The snakes are not in cages during the training so your dog will get the most natural experience and be able to make the correct associations.

Both your dog's physical safety and mental well-being are top priority; the trainers always start with the lowest correction level and will tailor each dog's training session to meet their individual psychological needs. The snakes are all safely and humanely muzzled and equal consideration is put into their well-being, as well.
