Do you go hiking with your dogs? Have you ever found a rattler in your yard? YAPS cares about the safety of your pet! We are giving you an opportunity to have your dog trained by Anthony and Joel from Snake Worx, a professional rattlesnake avoidance dog training company. It really can save your dog's and even possibly your own life. Prevention is the best medicine. If your dog is bit by a rattlesnake, the anti-venom can be $600 per dose and may need several doses to be saved. The treatment is not 100% either, even with treatment the dog may still lose his life.

 The Training will be held at Yucaipa Animal Placement Society (YAPS)
11937 13th Street, Yucaipa, CA 92399
