Learn how to train your dog to avoid a snake the positive, force-free way. Improve your dog’s response in an emergency situation while on leash.
This program is designed to help both humans and dogs enjoy outdoor activities on leash in Florida – a state which is home to 6 types of venomous snakes. Learn how you and your dog should respond if you encounter a snake on a walk. Dog snake avoidance training is currently offered in private training sessions on our Tampa dog training campus. Please note that this training cannot be provided virtually and is only available in a private training setting.
This training does not offer any guarantees, but provides a thorough education on the best means for avoiding a snake encounter with your dog. This program is not able to provide any off-leash training. This program is designed for on-leash interactions and encounters with snakes, where a handler is able to safely supervise and communicate with their dog in the event of encountering a snake. Permitting a dog to be off-leash and unsupervised in a public place is not legally permitted in the state of Florida and poses a safety hazard.
