Teaching snake and other "critter" avoidance using positive reinforcement. This is the only class of its kind in Utah! We safely utilize live, contained snakes (both rattlesnakes and non-venomous snakes) for learning. We are teaching the dogs to avoid the snakes in this class!!!
IMPORTANT NOTE: for success both in this class and in this skill, you will need to practice with your dog between classes and continue practicing with your dog after the class is complete. Since this is a lifesaving skill, it needs to be kept fresh in your dog's brain! Side By Side Dog Training cannot guarantee results/outcome.
We suggest taking this class now, so you have plenty of time to train and practice before hiking/rattlesnake "season."
Prerequisites: dogs must have a basic working knowledge of coming when called and "leave it" and have taken at least one class with Side By Side Dog Training (OR Instructor Approval -- please email us if you have any questions).
Instructors: Tori Lowry and Laurie Schlossnagle
