Humane Society of Southern AZ offering rattlesnake avoidance classes

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Interested in keeping your dog safe from rattlesnakes?  The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is teaming up with Animal Experts, Inc. and Paul Blaushild from A-dobe Dog Training to provide rattlesnake avoidance classes for the public. 

These classes will be offered on a weekly basis, to teach the dogs how to use their eyes, nose, and ears to recognize rattlesnakes and associate their appearance, scent, and sound with danger.  

Classes are $105 for one dog, and $85 to register a second dog. In order to take the class dogs must be at least six months of age and have proof of current vaccinations.  Each dog in the course will be on a leash and handled by an adult. 

Interested in attending? Classes will be held each Tuesday at 5 p.m, 6 p.m., and 7 p.m., on HSSA's new campus located at 635 W. Roger Rd.. The next class will be offered April 3. 

Register for classes over the phone by calling Dawn Miller at (520) 321-3704  ext. 125; or online here: https://hssaz.org/services/education/education-for-adults/rattlesnake/

    "Everybody just loved her," Johnson told Tucson News Now. "It didn't occur to me that anybody would want that. Why would somebody do that?" She feared the worst had happened - a potential intentional poisoning.
