About the class

How the classes work 

  • The training is simple and effective.
  • Your dog will learn to identify the smell of a rattlesnake and then to avoid it - for life.
  • We use a live, unaltered rattlesnake, kept in a strike-proof cage with plenty of venting so your dog can get close and get a good smell of rattlesnake.
  • At the time your dog's snout is full of rattlesnake smell, we activate the training collar to deliver a sharp pain.
  • Your dog now associates that specific smell with pain and will avoid it at all costs.
  • Every dog is tested at the end of the class to make sure they are now snake-proof and I offer free re-testing at any future class so you can be confident in your dog's training.


Payment is required at the time of registration. If you prefer to pay by check, please email to make arrangements. Please keep in mind that I will not be able to hold a place for you in the class until your check is received.

Class size 

When you come to the class, I want to make sure I have ample time to spend with each participant and their dog(s), so I limit the class size to 20 dogs. This also means there is less idle time for each participant.


Classes are located in the Sunnyslope area north of Wenatchee. The specific address will be emailed after registration.
