Rattlesnake avoidance training is just one of the clinics and services we offer to help keep your dog safe on the trail. Natural Solutions does an impressive job using live, muzzled, wild rattlesnakes and electronic collars which teaches your dog in the gentlest way possible to stay away from rattlesnakes on the trail and in your yard or campsite. One of the nice side benefits is that your dog will alert you to the presence of rattlesnakes and allow you to avoid the snake! I have been very impressed as the dogs in my hiking group (who have all received the rattlesnake avoidance training) consistently come away from snakes and directly to me. This training takes about 1/2 an hour and it is good to refresh it at least once a year.
