November 2017 – Vet Practice Magazine

Our Snake Avoidance Training for Dogs was recently featured in Vet Practice Magazine. Here’s a snippet:

Western Australian vet Felicity Harradine says she understands owners having reservations about snake avoidance training for their dogs but when it comes down to potentially saving the life of one of her four beloved border collies, she doesn’t hesitate.

Dr Harradine says she sees a lot of snake bites at her practice – at least 50 a season. So not only does she do the avoidance training regularly with her dogs, she “absolutely” recommends it to her clients and even organises expert trainer David Manning to travel the two hours down from Perth to Bunbury do it.
