Rattlesnakes are common in El Dorado County, and reports of sightings and bites have already started. Treatment is extremely costly and their bite (if left untreated) is often fatal to dogs. Since rattlesnakes have a unique smell, a distinct look, and a very distinguishable sound, training a dog to recognize one in each of these senses gives your dog triple protection in learning to stay far away from the snake.
For more information on available openings, call Cathy Keeler at 530-622-6909 between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. or visit the Hangtown Kennel Club Website at hangtownkc.org.
