I would have screamed like someone was trying to kill me. I'm okay with snakes as long as there is a glass barrier between them and I.

Try contacting the trainer - WWW.Snakebreaker.com. See which would be the closest clinic to you. It is cheaper to attend a clinic, then it would be to travel to his location with just one dog.

zyppi Not sure you can control all snake bites. We live in Louisiana where all poisonous snakes in this country abide.

We didn't recognize Jack's 'strange behavior' as snake poisoning until his leg swelled. He was just behaving like he was somewhat 'out of it.'

We think that Sofie probably ran over the snake and stirred it up as Jack ran after her and snake ( don't know what king) bit her.



Vet said many dogs get bitten toying with snakes - so bites on noses - but few get the kind of bite Jack sustained.

That said, hunters here use labs in the snakiest areas and I've never heard on one losing their dogs to the varmits.

I've stepped on them in pastures (barefoot) and had one fall down my shirt once...

I hate, hate snakes.

Heidigsd I am seeing more classes being offered that don't use an e-collar like this one.

If you are looking for Avoidance Clinics, I'd suggest you try to contact large working dog clubs. Hunting type - Retrievers, Trackers etc. The clubs normally host the clinic and bring in a professional handler.

JaimeZX Aaah. Well that makes more sense. lol
Otherwise, some vitamin E on any wounds would probably help them heal.
