Here's What Our Snake Avoidance Dog Training Program Offers

Welcome to our Snake Avoidance Dog Training Program, dedicated to helping your canine companion stay safe in snake-infested areas. Whether you live in regions with venomous snakes or enjoy outdoor activities in snake-prone environments, our program is designed to teach your dog to recognize and avoid potential snake encounters, reducing the risk of snake bites and injuries.

Here’s what our Snake Avoidance Dog Training Program offers:

Customized Training Plan: We begin with a completely Free snake avoidance dog training lesson. In this lesson we will be conducting a thorough assessment of your dog’s behavior, temperament, and your training goals using our simple and effective 5 step process. Based on this evaluation, we develop a personalized training plan tailored to meet your dog’s unique needs and goals.

Understanding Snake Behavior: We begin by educating you about the behavior and habitats of venomous snakes commonly found in your area. Understanding the characteristics and behaviors of snakes is crucial for effective snake avoidance training and ensuring your dog’s safety.

Positive Association with Avoidance Behaviors: We utilize positive reinforcement techniques to teach your dog to associate the scent of snakes with avoidance behaviors. This may include backing away, moving in the opposite direction, or seeking guidance from you, their handler, when encountering snake scent cues.

Training in Realistic Environments: We conduct training sessions in realistic outdoor environments where snakes are likely to be encountered. This may include trails, parks, or other natural areas with known snake activity. By exposing your dog to real-life scenarios, we help them generalize avoidance behaviors across different environments.

Simulation of Snake Encounters: We simulate snake encounters using training aids or remote-controlled snake replicas to mimic the appearance and movement of snakes. This allows your dog to practice avoidance behaviors in a controlled setting, preparing them to react appropriately when encountering real snakes in the wild.

Handler Education and Support: We provide comprehensive education and support for handlers, equipping you with the knowledge and skills needed to recognize snake encounters and reinforce avoidance behaviors in your dog. This includes instruction on reading your dog’s body language, understanding snake behavior, and implementing effective handling techniques during snake avoidance training exercises.

Guaranteed Results, Continuous Support and Guidance: With our Results Guarantee we promise to reach the goals that you set forth at the start of the snake avoidance dog training program and we will provide unlimited lessons until those goals are reached. Our commitment to your success doesn’t end with the lessons. We also provide unlimited ongoing phone and email support, to address any challenges or refine skills over the lifetime of your dog.

With our Snake Avoidance Dog Training Program, you’ll gain peace of mind knowing that your canine companion is equipped to navigate snake-infested areas safely. By teaching your dog to recognize and avoid potential snake encounters, you’ll reduce the risk of snake bites and injuries, allowing you and your dog to enjoy outdoor adventures with confidence and safety.

Brice is simply the best. His goal is to be every customer’s last trainer and he is definitely ours. My pup momo is very smart but also very independent (read: stubborn) and in just two weeks she was an obedient little working dog. Regardless of the challenges you have have with your dog, I’m confident Brice can help you solve them.

Brice helped teach my dog and me several life-changing walking skills in our first 1-hour training session. I went from having extreme anxiety about walking my dog, to feeling much more in control and able to handle him.

I am very grateful to have had Montreal spend time with my dog who I was beginning to think I had no control over. He has thoroughly explained the behavior and how to change it and given me all I need to keep the work going so that I can feel more confident walking my dog!! Totally recommend Montreal.

Great experience with Total Dog. I have a stubborn as hell Bull Terrier and Montreal, one of the behaviorist trainers did an outstanding job with him. From obedience commands to walking on a leash (which he outright wouldn’t do before). Very impressed and very grateful. Montreal is one of the best.

Montreal trained my mom’s dog Elvis who was at the time showing aggressive/reactive behavior. We thought we had no hope. We were going to re-home him or put him down. Montreal taught us that patience and leadership is the key to success. In two weeks we had a changed dog. We knew that we had a lot more work to be done also by us as pet parents it has now been four months and Elvis is doing great thanks to Montreal for showing us how to have patience with our fur baby I would definitely recommend him as one of total dogs best trainers

At Total Dog! We provide our clients with custom-made training programs designed around your specific goals and your dog’s unique learning style. Our training programs vary from dog to dog in structure, layout, duration and cost.

That’s why we don’t offer a one program fits all solution. Instead we offer a Free Consultation so that we can meet with you and your dog to evaluate factors such as lifestyle, goals, age, temperament, breed and previous training. That way we can develop a custom-made training program that perfectly fits your goals and needs!

We offer a Total Dog! dog training package that includes unlimited lessons until your dog reaches the goals identified at the start of the program. Following the program’s completion, you’ll have the opportunity to extend your dog’s training to help them reach new goals.

No, we don’t impose any breed restrictions. Total Dog! is an all-inclusive dog trainer that specializes in private dog-training for all kinds of dogs.

Right away! It’s true: you can teach an old dog new tricks and puppies are sponges for new information. While each dog has their own unique learning style and levels of maturity, as long as they’re awake, they’re learning.
At Total Dog!, we’re a truly all-inclusive dog training service. We work with dogs of all breeds and all ages.
