Training in Edmond to help dogs avoid snakes

EDMOND, Okla. (KFOR) – A training session will be held in Edmond this weekend to help dogs avoid encounters with snakes.

The Central Oklahoma Chapter of Quail Forever will hold the training session from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 9 at the Arcadia Conservation Education Area of ​​the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, 7201 E 33rd St., in Edmond.

KFOR reported on Wednesday that a dog died of a rattlesnake bite at Carlton Landing, a resort town on Lake Eufaula.

Training will help dogs see, smell, and hear snakes, which will give them time to avoid a snake’s area, as well as warn the handler that a snake might be in the area.

The training also includes a proven method of snake protection that can protect dogs and handlers.

“While no method can be 100% guaranteed to prevent accidental snake contact, this training will give dogs the ability to avoid snake encounters,” a press release from Quail Forever reads.

Training registration fees start at $50 for one dog. Reservations are limited. Click here to register for the training.
