March 5, 2015 (San Diego's East County) - The San Diego chapter of the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) is sponsoring a Rattlesnake Avoidance Training clinic for dogs March 28th at the Jamul Veterinary Hospital in Jamul.
Please call Mark Miller (619) 384-5363 for information and directions.
Every year dogs are bitten by Rattlesnakes in San Diego County requiring vet bills that range from $1,500 to $5,000. Avoidance training teaches your dog to identify the sight, smell, and sound and thus stay away from Rattlesnakes. If you live near one of our canyons, or take your dog on hikes in the canyons or back country your dog could encounter a Rattlesnake. Avoidance training could save your dog's life.
