This week's Day Training Extra Credit: Rattlesnake Safety! We're lucky to have such great open spaces in Colorado to enjoy with our dogs, but we have to remember that we share them with native wildlife that isn't always dog friendly. To reduce your dog's risk of rattlesnake bites, keep them close and on leash, consider getting the rattlesnake venom vaccine which may reduce the severity of symptoms if your dog does take a strike, and consider snake avoidance training using positive reinforcement methods. Also find out what emergency vets in your area have rattlesnake antivenin (most don't!) so you know where to go in an emergency.
