What makes us your best choice?
Karen Singleton has been training dogs since 1977! She has trained thousands of dogs during that time, and still seeks to improve her techniques as new research and knowledge become available!
Carl Person has been working with reptiles, specifically venomous snakes since 1978! He is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Loma Linda University where he is studying rattlesnake speciation, behavior and morphology.
The qualifications of our team give us tremendous insight into the behaviors of both the dogs and the snakes!
- Your dog will be exposed by our team to live, uncaged rattlesnakes indigenous to YOUR area!
- The course begins with a gestalt experience of a large rattlesnake.
- The second station has a baby (or small) snake. This is a very important and difficult station! The dogs must learn to be cautious at all times!
- The next two stations separate scent and sound. Separation of these stimuli are crucial for complete training. Your pet may not see the snake in time but, with their keen nose and ears, they can still avoid danger!
- Handle your dog to recognize your pet's unique warning system!
- The training is culminated by calling your pet and having it avoid.
- Your pet receives a "safety-level" grade!
- FREE annual re-checks. Call for more information. NOTE: We offer this Free Re-Check Day at the end of the season.
