Dog training reduces rattlesnake bite hazard

Wednesday, July 15, 2015 — Rattlesnakes are already active due to the mild winter and low precipitation, fostering an earlier and longer snake season. If you enjoy activities that take you and your dogs outdoors, you and your pets may be at risk for encountering rattlesnakes. And as the snakes keep moving in search of food and mates, they may even end up in your own backyard. According to the California Poison Control System, the state’s current warmer-than-average weather means that this spring and summer will be a very active rattler season.
    Lassen County pet owners are highly encouraged to take part in this important Rattlesnake Avoidance Training Clinic. Get Rattled will be holding a training session in Janesville on July 19. Trainings are provided by appointment between 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. with sessions lasting approximately 20 minutes.
