Best Training to Keep Fido Safe in the Woods: Winter Kennels

Best Training to Keep Fido Safe in the Woods: Winter Kennels
PHOTO BY David Brendan Hall

Whether your four-legged best friend is an occasional hiker or ready for field trials, no one wants their first encounter with a venomous snake to be their last. Dogs are naturally curious about snakes and not always naturally fearful. With a little training, a dog can learn real quick that snakes are bad. Different kinds of snakes emit a different odor to dogs; the training can cover the three most common poisonous snakes. It’s an inexpensive clinic that can save you and your pet a lot of grief.
