Mountains Restoration Trust is now taking reservations for the 2014 Rattlesnake Avoidance Training Clinic for Dogs. The one-on-one training process protects dogs from bites by ensuring that dogs understand the sight, smell and sound of a rattlesnake. (Rattlesnakes have a distinctive odor that dogs can discern from other snakes). The clinic is conducted in a safe, humane, controlled environment ensuring the safety of dogs and rattlesnakes. Poisonous snakes are out the year round in southern California.
Clinic dates are:
April 19 & 20 at Headwaters Corner at Calabasas 3815 Old Topanga Canyon Rd., Calabasas 91302
May 17 & 18 and June 21 at City of Calabasas Bark Park, 4232 Las Virgenes Rd., Calabasas 91302.
Appointments are given after registration. Must pre-register online at www.mountainstrust.org. Call 818-591-1701 ext 2 with questions. The fee is $75. Training is conducted by Tracy Presson of High on Kennels.
