It is no secret that living in the rural areas of Yucaipa lend residents and their pets to continual interaction with the local wildlife.  As spring has sprung, so have our serpent friends.  The warmer weather brings out a very dangerous slithering foe, the rattlesnake.  The venom of the rattler can impose devastating if not deadly results to people and pets alike if bitten. 

In an effort to decrease the risk Yucaipa Animal Placement Society, YAPS, has joined Enlighten Dogs Training in offering training for rattle snake avoidance techniques to dogs and their people.  Join Elicia & Chris Ashton of Enlighten Dogs and professional rattlesnake avoidance training company, Snakeworx, for outdoor interactive aversion session with the dogs to insure that both you and your pet are snake smart.  The training is scheduled for Thursday, March 26th and Friday, March 27th and cost is $75 per dog. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to YAPS. Appointments are available from 10am - 8pm. To register for the training please call YAPS (909) 790-1440.
