Rattlesnake bites to dogs can be costly to treat and even deadly; Help safeguard your dog against unexpected rattlesnake encounters when hiking, hunting or even in your own backyard. Rattlesnakes are active from early spring through mid-fall and hibernate in winter. With fall right around the corner it is possible to see an increase in rattlesnake activity as they begin to search for a warm place to hibernate for the winter. This increases the chance that you and your dog may encounter a rattlesnake – dogs are more likely to die from rattlesnake bites than humans due to the difference in body weight.
Avoidance training can be a lifesaving tool for not only your dog but for dog owners as well by warning owners of a snake nearby. Brekke Veterinary Clinic is partnering with J Paw Training LLC to offer a rattlesnake avoidance training Saturday August 20th,2022. Registration is $115 per dog and a portion of the proceeds go to medical care for rescue pets in Colorado (rescue partners of Brekke Veterinary Clinic). The training will last approximately 30 minutes per dog which is longer than the average 15-minute training. First training will begin at 6:30am and the last will be at 11:30am to help avoid afternoon summer heat!
