How does the class work? We use a live enclosed rattlesnake to teach your dog that the sight, sound and smell of rattlesnakes is bad. We isolate all of the senses to make sure your dog can discern the difference, giving them the best chance of safety when encountering them.
How much are classes? Our classes are $125 cash or card, this payment includes free retesting for following seasons.
Are they real rattlesnakes? Are they loose? We love snakes!!! Therefore we do not defang our rattlesnakes, they are safely enclosed so that your dog can still hear, see and smell them.
Do you offer private classes? Yes! We can travel to you or schedule a private class. (fees may apply) This is often utilized for people who have dog aggressive dogs.
How old does my dog need to be? Ideal dogs for the class are ages 1-10 with a curiosity and adventurous side. The youngest I accept is 6months, I strongly urge any dog under 1 to come to the free retest the following season.
How long is the class? Class is typically 1.5 hours.
Will I be handling my dog? Or will someone else? Owners will be handling their dogs unless assistance is needed.
