March 10, 2018 - Snake Breaking Clinic

For the newbies, "snake breaking"  is aversion training so your dog does not go after snakes, and in fact, avoids them and may alert you to them.

Snakes are active during warm weather, which in Arizona means snakebite season typically lasts from April through October. 

September is the month when more snakebite calls are received than any other month of the year. However, during the hottest summer months, the snakes are less active during the day, meaning fewer interactions with people and fewer bites. Come September, when temperatures become more tolerable and mornings are cooler, the snakes increase their daytime activity and more human interactions occur, resulting in more bites.

This clinic is being held at the Deer Creek Animal Hospital site, 3025 E. Rose Garden Lane in Phoenix from 7am-10am. Email at ramaher@juno.com or call Rick Maher at 623-258-7193 to RSVP a spot at for the next clinic.
