Rattlesnake Avoidance Training for Dogs

Rattlesnake avoidance training season is beginning once again!!! Our calendar is now available for sign ups for Tuesday & Saturday classes.

We are now offering Tuesday classes YEAR ROUND!!!!

We are currently having difficulty with our host server loading our new training calendar. Please see list of available dates on our calendar page & email us at azrattlesnakes@gmail.com with your name, # of dogs to be trained (please indicate if new training or follow-up testing) & date you wish to attend the class & we will add you to the list & send a confirmation email within 72 hours. We apologize for the inconvenience & thank you for choosing us for your training. 

Living in Tucson, Marana, Oro Valley, Catalina, or anywhere in Arizona, means being aware of rattlesnakes.  To a dog that is unaware, a rattlesnake may look like a toy or a prey animal to be sniffed out & investigated.  They might chase or try to bite the snake, leading to them getting bit, instead.

Rattlesnake aversion training has been proven safe and very effective in helping to prevent dogs from being bitten by rattlesnakes. This is often referred to as “snake breaking” or “snake proofing”.

This is a quick training that could save your dog’s life and possibly your child’s or your own!”

If you like to hike with your dog or live near the desert, then this training is for you.  Our training helps your dog to realize the danger of rattlesnakes.  Included is one free follow-up session in the same calendar year.  We have more than 18 years of experience in this snake aversion training.

Our program is designed to teach your dog to recognize & avoid the Smell, Sight and Sound of Rattlesnakes.  It may also teach them to avoid other kinds of snakes, but we use Rattlesnakes because they are by far the most common venomous snake in this part of the country. Rattlesnakes, being pit vipers, have their own distinct odor which your dog will be able to distinguish after the training.

To sign up  for a class online:
