Do you go hiking with your dogs? Have you ever found a rattler in your yard? Enlighten Dogs & YAPS care about the safety of your pet! We are giving you an opportunity to have your dog trained by 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 still may lose his life.

They use 3 different live rattlesnakes that are humanely muzzled to ensure safety of your dog. They use and electric-collar that is set at the lowest level possible for your dog. The dog will associate the correction with the snake not the human. Your dog will learn through sight, scent and sound with a native type of baby rattler & adult rattler. Safety is the number one concern for your dog!

The training is $75 Per Dog & a Portion of the Proceeds will be Donated back to YAPS! The Training will be held at Yucaipa Animal Placement Society (YAPS). 11937 13th Street, Yucaipa, CA 92399
