RATTLESNAKE CLINIC Presented by Wasatch Mountain NAVHDA.
Presented by Wasatch Mountain NAVHDA
Utah is home to 7 different types* of rattlesnakes. Here, the chances of your dog encountering a rattlesnake while hunting, hiking, and in some residential areas are high. Having a dog with a great nose is a good thing, but can also get them in trouble when they scent a rattlesnake and go to investigate. We put too much time and money into our dogs to lose them to a snake bite. The Wasatch Mountain NAVHDA Chapter is putting on this clinic, so that your dog can encounter snakes in a controlled setting. Your dog will learn to avoid the scents, sounds, and sight of rattlesnakes, saving you the expense of treating a bite, and the heartache of losing your dog.
