Canine Snake Avoidance Training

Protect Dogs From Snakes

During the peak snake season, The Snake Hunter gets about 5 calls a week from dog owners who have lost their pet to a snakebite. As a result, Mark Pelley did a short documentary on his journey to learn about how to teach dogs to avoid snakes. During this journey, Mark flew to Perth to meet Seth Pywell, Founder of Canine Snake Avoidance in Australia who taught Mark how to teach dogs to avoid snakes.
Following, Mark now is the only person in Victoria trained by Seth Pywell to teach dogs to avoid snakes. In this comprehensive 2 day program, dogs are taught to avoid snakes upon visual or olfactory (smell) identification of a snake.
Classes are taught 1:1, pairs or small groups. We can come out to you. Mark can train dogs of all sizes from small Chihuahuas to large 55kg  Burnese Mountain dogs such as the one in the photo here.
