See Snake & Run

Life-saving force-free snake avoidance training for dogs.

Once upon a time, snakes were prevalent in rural and bush areas.  These days, snakes are found in suburban and city backyards, beaches and more. See Snake & Run is a positive reinforcement, force-free snake avoidance training program.  It is designed so that dogs will respond to their human in the presence of a snake or danger under supervision rather than being left unattended in the backyard or running free.  In conjunction with a registered snake catcher, Veronika Ross who holds appropriate permits to provide resources and ensure safety of training.  There are three levels to the training:-

 

1. Introductory See Snake & Run
5 sessions including online SESSIONS and/or workshop

  • Safety information provided by Snakes Alive, Veronika Ross

  • Dogs respond to a well-trained emergency recall

  • Dogs respond to the odour of a snake (fake snake, snake skins and preserved snake) as a recall cue

  • Dogs respond to the movement of a snake as a recall cue

  • Dogs learn to respond to a Collar Grab

$285 – Introductory course – small groups – up to 6 dogs all working separately. Flexible delivery methods including face-to-face session, workshops and virtual sessions.  Workshop requests available on request.

2.  Advanced See Snake & Run (on demand)

Price on Application

 

3.  Proofing in realistic environments (on demand) 

An important step practising in realistic environments where dogs are likely to encounter snakes.

 

Price on Application

 

It is important to appreciate that there are no guarantees with this training which is applicable with any behaviour, however proofed training can greatly reduce the probability of being bitten by a snake.

 

4.  Private Training – 1-1 Consults

I come to your home to customise the See Snake & Run program specific to your environment.
