Rattlesnake Avoidance Training Seminar with Lynn Webb 

Saturday, February 19, 2022 or Sunday, February 20, 2022

9 - 5 pm

Love hitting the trails with your dog but worried about encountering a venomous snake? Join us for a one-day rattlesnake avoidance training seminar using positive reinforcement.  

Rattlesnake avoidance training focuses on the skills you and your dog need to stay safe in your backyard or hiking the trails. Awareness is important when living in rattlesnake areas and this seminar will teach you and your dog how to respond if you cross paths with a rattler. Using only Positive-Reinforcement methods, we will focus on specific training behaviors, as well as visual, auditory and olfactory cues specific to snakes. No live snakes or punishment tools are used in this seminar. 

In this one-day seminar you’ll learn:

  • Information on snake behavior and habitat
  • Management of your environment
  • How to safely move away from a snake
  • How to avoid rattlesnakes using visual, auditory, and olfactory cues
  • How to train and use critical behaviors and techniques such as: Leave It, Recall, Stay/Wait, Redirection, and Safe Restraint
  • How to strengthen these behaviors in different environments.
