This online course helps both trainers and dog owners use positive reinforcement techniques to teach their dogs to avoid rattlesnakes through handler cues, environmental cues, and intelligent disobedience. It is simple enough to train our dogs to "leave it", but what if your dog encounters a rattlesnake when you are far behind them on a hiking trail, or while they are roaming your property? My training guides you through techniques to train your dog respond to both your cues, and to recognize the visual profile, scent, and sound of a rattlesnake as cues for them to offer trained avoidance behaviors. I teach several avoidance behaviors that your dog can offer on his own in different varying situations in which he may encounter a rattlesnake. This course also teaches intelligent disobedience, in which we train our dogs to ignore any cues we give to move forward toward a snake. Our dogs may detect a snake is present before we realize it is there.
