FINAL PHASE: Testing
In this step we will test the effectiveness of the training process. In a large open area the dog will be brought by the handler to a location opposite of the owner with a rattlesnake on the ground in between. The owner will then be asked to call their dog and the dog should arc his or her path to avoid the snake as he or she returns to the owner.
There will be multiple locations on our training course for each of the phases mentioned above as well as other items designed to give your dog the BEST opportunity to learn to recognize and avoid rattlesnakes.
We hope that by taking part in this training the dog as well as the owner will be spared the pain and distress (as well as the expense) caused by the dog becoming a victim of rattlesnake bite. If the owner is observant of the dog's avoidance behavior it can possibly prevent them from being bitten as well.
