Avoiding-a-painful-death .... keep your dog snake safe! .....
Yes it is possible to train your dog to avoid venomous snakes and avoid being bitten!
A fence is not required!
Besides saving the life of your beloved canine, it may also save you many thousands of dollars in unexpected vet bills to keep your beloved pet alive.
... For many years people have attempted to train dogs to avoid snakes by using non-venomous snakes or lizards and correction training to teach avoidance behaviour.
Unfortunately this rarely worked, because dogs see venomous snakes as being different.
This is because besides looking different to non-venomous species, they have a very different odour and dogs have a very acute sense of smell. In fact different species of venomous snakes are so different to one another that a dog trained to avoid one species will only also avoid very closely related ones (same genus at best).
Hence dogs trained using non-venomous snakes still got bitten by venomous ones and avoidance training became viewed by everyone in the dog training fraternity as a waste of time and money.
Until now, using venomous snakes in training couldn't be contemplated as the downside would be dogs getting bitten and dying during training.
This changed in 2003, when the Snakeman Raymond Hoser, who happens to be the world's foremost reptile expert solved the problem!
He became the first person in the world to successfully surgically devenomize deadly snakes using state-of-the-art keyhole surgery. That is, deadly snakes were made totally harmless by the surgical removal of the relevant saliva glands.
These magnificent serpents have been used in Australia’s best reptile shows ever since. This includs at shopping malls, schools and other venues across Australia, being the only guaranteed safe venomous shows in the country. That is why Snakebusters® and Reptile Parties® are the most demanded reptile shows in all parts of Australia.
But because these snakes are totally safe (they have no venom), they can also be safely used for canine snake avoidance training and with zero risk to the dogs.
Canine Snake Avoidance training has been perfected in recent years and with stunning results.
As the Snakeman and his businesses remain the only people in Australia with the expertise to have vet certified surgically devenomized snakes, only the snakeman can do safe snake avoidance training for dogs using genuine venomous snakes, including all the ones likely to be encountered, such as Black, Brown, Tiger, Taipan, Death Adder and Copperhead.
Teaming up with the best dog trainers in Australia, at the Victorian Dog Academy (VDTA), the snakeman and the VDTA regularly train dogs to avoid venomous snakes.
Yes, the Snakeman and the VDTA have saved lives of numerous family pets.
While there are people elsewhere in Australia marketing their own imitation snake aversion training for dogs, none use devenomized deadly snakes and hence all are inferior and cannot guarantee results. Beware of false claims of imitators!
There are also a number of thieves and scammers illegally using our registered trademarks Snake Avoidance ®, even though we have taken out restraining orders against them in the courts!
See the generalized scammer warning here.
Snakes trained avoidance with non-venomous pythons will not avoid venomous snakes. They look different, smell different and with a sense of smell far greater than a human's, dogs can tell snakes apart and unless trained on the exact species of relevance (the venomous ones), you are effectively wasting your time and money with any aversion training for dogs.
Anyone alleging otherwise is simply scamming you for your cash!
See the specific dog snake avoidance training scam warning posted here.
So if you live in a snake prone area and you don’t want to see your dog suffer the agony of an avoidable painful snakebite death, it is best to be proactive and enrol your pet for Snake Avoidance ® training now.
