Announcements:​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
As snakes come out of hibernation and cross paths with hiker's and homeowner's pets - we get completely inundated with phone calls for training. We are training dogs all day, 6 days a week to do our best to accommodate the need. Please keep in mind I (Cody) will be virtually unable to answer the phone this time of year, but Kate is ready to take your call!

Rattlesnake Ready, LLC
Is your dog Rattlesnake Ready?

Our number one service is rattlesnake avoidance training for dogs. Most domestic dogs have no clue that rattlesnakes are dangerous and willingly approach them – even if they have been bitten before! Rattlesnake aversion training teaches your dog both safely and effectively the dangers of rattlesnakes using positive punishment methods. If you reside in a rural area or expose your dog to rattlesnake habitat, this is for you. In just one training session in under an hour of time, your dog will learn to stay away from rattlesnakes and avoid their sounds and smells. This significantly  reduces their risk of snakebite, which can be lifesaving while preventing an expensive emergency vet visit. Our very realistic training process safely exposes the dog to the REAL smells, REAL sounds, and REAL sight of live, muzzled rattlesnakes, for real accuracy! Because no form of positive reinforcement training teaches the dogs the true danger of rattlesnakes both quickly and indefinitely, electronic training [shock] collars are used to simulate a rattlesnake bite; causing momentary discomfort. This safe, quick jolt takes the place of the actual rattlesnake bite and communicates to the dog  “Rattlesnake = Danger!” The training is effective for just about all dogs 6+ months old; regardless of the breed or size, and is typically retained for years.

toad avoidance training
Is your dog toad-ally trained?

As if rattlesnakes weren't enough, a substantial number of Arizona pet owners deal with Sonoran desert toad encounters - especially during monsoon season. These large toads possess poison glands that when  contacted by a curious dog's nose or mouth, it can be life threatening. In fact, multiple reports confirm that more dogs die from toad poisoning in the Phoenix area than from rattlesnake bites! We were asked so many times by our clients over the years to offer some sort of toad training, and we are excited to announce that beginning in 2019 we are finally ready to do it!

The best time for this training is in June and in the early evening hours. ​​
