2012 Rattlesnake Avoidance Training Clinic for Dogs

Do you and your pet enjoy hiking? Do you live in a rural area or near a canyon? These areas are also home to poisonous snakes that bite about 15,000 dogs each year and can attack the year round in southern California. Bites can be fatal and treatment can cost thousands of dollars. By completing a 20 minute (average time it takes) one-on-one training session, your dog could be saved from unnecessary suffering.


The MRT 2012 Rattlesnake Avoidance Training Clinic for Dogs is led by expert Tracy Jenson-Presson of High on Kennels located in San Diego County. Tracy has many years of experience training dogs to avoid rattlesnakes. She is well known for being a problem solver when it comes to difficult dogs. Visit her website at www.highonkennels.com

Our training clinics are conducted in a safe, humane, controlled environment ensuring the safety of your dog, as well as the safety of the rattlesnakes. The training process is repeated several times to assure that your dog will understand the sight, smell and sound of a rattlesnake (they have a distinctive odor that dogs can discern from other snakes). Please allow about an hour for your session to sign in and make any time adjustments to scheduling, assuring that proper attention is given to all participants.

Rattlesnake Clinics will resume in 2013, check back in January, 2013 for the schedule.
