Rattlesnake Avoidance Training For Your Dog

Still teaching your dog to avoid rattlesnakes the old fashioned way?

Kellen Rescue is offering a workshop to be held at Oakhurst Cause for Paws that could save your pet’s life. It’s that time of year again when rattlesnakes are out and about and very active, which may cause your dog to become very curious, and that curiosity could prove fatal for your best friend.

On Saturday, July 7th, from 10am – 12noon, you and your furry friend are invited to come to 40455 Hiway 41 for Rattlesnake Avoidance Training. The training is guaranteed, or it’s free. The charge is $60 for one dog, and $40 for each additional dog for owners with two or more.

Proceeds are split between Kellen Rescue (local no-kill canine/feline rescue group) and GSP rescue (German Shorthaired Pointer rescue) who started actively promoting rattlesnake avoidance training 30 years ago. Kellen Rescue collaborates with GSP to rescue and place German Shorthaired Pointers throughout California.

The cost to care for your dog if they are bitten by a rattlesnake can cost between $1700- $2300 in veterinary care. However it is a statistical fact that MOST rattlesnake bites happen during a weekend – which increases the cost for an emergency veterinary to $2600 – $3600.

Training is conducted by Kellen Rescue. For more information or to register for the training, email ellen@sti.net or call 209-742-4294 or 559-692-2488.

Call today to make your reservation. Walk-ins will be welcomed, though space is limited so reservations are encouraged.

Get it done right the first time, for your dog’s sake.
