SNAKEOUT™ helps keep your dogs safe thru our one-of-a-kind in-home Canine Rattlesnake Aversion Training Program servicing Northern California including El Dorado Hills, El Dorado County and the Sacramento metropolitan region. While Canines are commonly considered to be man's best friend, the reality is Canines and rattlesnakes do not mix well in nature. If you reside in an area with a dense population of rattlesnakes, rattlesnake avoidance training should be implemented throughout the year on a semi-regular schedule.
The primary objective of our Northern California canine rattlesnake avoidance training - referred to internally as Canine Rattlesnake Aversion Training - is to help keep your dog safe from rattlesnakes while roaming your Northern California property or co-existing elsewhere in nature. When successfully implemented, if in the future your dog sees or encounters a Northern California rattlesnake he or she may attempt to avoid the rattlesnake and might stay within a safe distance of the rattlesnake. During Canine Rattlesnake Aversion Training we use live rattlesnakes which have had their mouths safely and humanely taped shut. This should prevent the snake from biting and also keeps the rattlesnake safe while allowing the rattlesnake to breathe naturally. Our process is such that we will place a rattlesnake in a pre-planned area within your home or on your property and will cause your dog to approach the rattlesnake. Thru use of an electric shock collar we send a signal to your dog to stop at a certain point leading up to the area where the rattlesnake is placed – the idea is that your dog will come to understand a ‘safe distance’ to keep from any rattlesnake they encounter in their daily lives. We use electronic collars with a shock or vibration setting which may cause brief discomfort for your dog but should not cause them any harm or pain. A trial will also be performed with a hidden speaker that makes a sound similar to that which rattlesnake makes with its rattle when it is warning an aggressor to stand down. During our Canine Rattlesnake Aversion Training we will also take steps to educate your dog to avoid the shed skin of a rattlesnake.
What sets our company apart from many other services is our passion for and dedication to rattlesnakes, rattlesnake education and wildlife in general. We genuinely care about keeping your pets safe thru this one-of-a-kind rattlesnake avoidance training program. We have years of experience training Canines of all species, genders and lifestyles throughout Northern California and our program is designed with safety and convenience in mind. While most of our rattlesnake avoidance training takes place in your home, we are able to schedule rattlesnake dog training in a field or other public location upon request. We provide rattlesnake dog training throughout Northern California, including Sacramento, El Dorado Hills, El Dorado County and Placer County.
