K9 Dog Park will begin training dogs to avoid rattlesnakes on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at 7:00 p.m., the first training for this class in the 2014 season. Subsequent classes will be available mostly on Wednesday evenings so attendees can have time to arrive with their dogs after their workday. Some Sunday afternoon classes also to be offered. The complete schedule can be found at website link.
K9 Dog Park first launched no-shock collar training in 2012 due to an outcry by clients who did not want their dogs hurt by shock collars during training. K9 Dog Park's snake avoidance training is positive reinforcement without the use of shock collars. According to the program creator Penny DiLoreto, “It is our belief that learning should not be painful and we have incorporated that belief into all of our training programs. Our snake avoidance training teaches dogs to avoid all snakes including rattlesnakes. Our program is positive but we do teach the dog to fear snakes through the uses of Sight, Sound, Scent, and Handler Correction using the 'Leave-It' command. The final test for success is watching dogs avoid our snake pit where pyrotechnic distractions, snake sounds and robotic snakes allows the dog owners to see the training success."
