Snake Avoidance Clinic
QHF has partnered with David “The Cobra Kid” Weathers, a professional venomous snake handler and animal trainer for a Snake Avoidance Clinic. The training aims to teach your dog to avoid snakes by conditioning them to the sight, smell and sound. This type of training can potentially save your dog’s life, and yours since trained dogs have kept their owners safe because of their aversion to these reptiles after training. David will handle a variety of native snakes which will be contained in a safe environment and placed in normal hunting situations in the field. The reptiles are moved so each handler and dog has a new scent. Training also incorporates the element of a verbal command, since a handler’s natural reaction to a snake is often verbal.
Who Should Attend?
This training session is open to any dog who can benefit, including hunting dogs, waterfowl retrievers, cattle dogs, herders and even your home companion.
