Snake Avoidance Training

This potentially life saving online course is facilitated by Marra from Dog Training Help in WA. 

Will your dog be one of thousands of Australian snake bite victims this summer? In Australia, there is an estimated 6,200 dog-snake bite cases reported annually. Snake avoidance training saves lives!

Our 8 week online program will help you teach your dog to detect local venemous snakes, retreat away from them & alert you to their presence by performing a behaviour you teach!


The course is broken up into 4 simple steps:

1. Chose an indication behaviour & review your recall

2. Chain your recall to your indication behaviour

3. Teach the odour as the cue for the behaviour chain

4. Practice in simple & then life-like setups


Enroll NOW so you're ready for summer!!
