Rattlesnake Avoidance Clinic

Saturday, May 13, 2023

8:00 a.m.


Prado Dog Park, Chino, CA

Rattlesnakes are a big problem here in California for dog owners.


Here are two of the ways that your dog can be bitten by a rattlesnake:

  1. Hunting dogs with their high prey instinct will attack a rattlesnake attracted by the movement, the sound or the smell of a snake.

  2. A dog running at full speed during hunting/or playing in open space can step on or run by a rattlesnake and get bitten.


To avoid this from happening, train your dog to avoid a rattlesnake with Rattlesnake Avoidance Clinic Training.


SoCal NAVHDA is offering a Rattlesnake Avoidance Clinic at Prado Recreation Dog Park in Chino on Saturday, May 13, 2023 starting at 08:00 a.m. at the Guido Dei NAVHDA Pond area. The cost of the clinic is $70 per dog. There is a $15.00 entry fee to the park. Members and, as a public service, non-members are welcome to sign up for this clinic. Your dog does not have to be a hunting dog to benefit from this training. Any dog exposed to open space where there could be snakes present will benefit.
