“GetRattled” Rattlesnake Avoidance Training for Dogs

rye patch state recreation area

GetRattled at Rye Patch State Recreation Area on Saturday April 29 from 9am-4pm.

GetRattled Rattlesnake Avoidance Training for dogs aims to ensure that your dog and your family never have to go through the tragedy of a venomous snake bite, which can cause excruciating pain, permanent physical damage, thousands of dollars in expense, and even death! GetRattled training will bring you peace of mind that your dog will avoid a dangerous rattlesnake encounter.

At our training classes, we create a course with different stations to expose and focus your dog’s attention on various aspects of rattlesnakes, focusing their attention on the sight, sound and smell of rattlesnakes. There are countless different scenarios in which your dog may find a rattlesnake, so we like to prepare for a wide variety of these. Our first station is a live rattlesnake out on the ground to make that initial encounter as natural as possible. Other stations include caged rattlesnakes for sound and primarily scent as well as snakes to give a different visual facet such as stretched out vs. coiled. At the conclusion, your dog is tested and if they respond by showing strong avoidance of the snakes, they pass.
