TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona has teamed up with Animal Experts Incorporated and A-dobe Dog Training to provide a final rattlesnake avoidance class for 2016. 

The last class will be held Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 3465 E. Kleindale Rd., Tucson, AZ 85716. Two classes are scheduled for the following times: 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. 

Rattlesnake avoidance classes are potentially lifesaving for you and your pet, as it teaches them to avoid snakes and helps warn you when one might be in striking distance.  Dogs learn to use their eyes, ears, and noses to learn how to avoid the rattlesnakes.  

Classes are $99 per dog, which includes a follow-up session (if necessary), if registering a second dog for the class there is a lower fee of $79. Each dog must be accompanied by a separate handler and no retractable leashes are allowed.  

Dogs must be at least six months of age and in good health, vaccinations must also be current and shown before class in order to participate.  

For more information and to sign up for classes contact the HSSA at (520) 327-6088 ext. 138 or click here.
