In California, our mild climate provides the perfect environment for Rattlesnakes to remain active year-round. According to Herpetologist, Kent Beaman, rattlesnakes living here in SoCal can be active all year. Anytime the weather reaches the high 70's or above for a few days the snakes can become active. Protect your dog with Rattlesnake Avoidance Training (R.A.T.). Dogs will learn to recognize the sight, smell, and sound of rattlesnakes- a skillset that could save his and your life. We hope that by taking part in this training the dog, as well as the owner will be spared the pain and distress (as well as the expense!) caused by the dog becoming a victim of a rattlesnake bite.
**Training available all over Central and Southern California year round**
