dog’s best friend! Many areas in California are rat lesnake habitats. Authorities have found them nearly everywhere, including hiking trails, backyards—even in garages and inside suburban homes! If you reside in or visit one of these areas, your dogs are in potential danger of interacting with and get ing bit en by a rat lesnake. One of the best preventative measures available is to have your dog trained to AVOID rat lesnakes. Not only can it save your dog’s life, but if you are observant of your dog’s avoidance behavior learned from R.A.T.—Rat lesnake Avoidance Training—then your dog can alert you to the presence of a rat lesnake and possibly prevent you from being bit en, too. Rat lesnake Avoidance Training is a pro- cess of conditioning an avoidance response by pairing something unpleasant. R.A.T. presents vibration, spray or static remote collars with the sight, sound and scent of rat lesnakes. Many dogs do not instinctively know to stay away from rat lesnakes and instead are curious and try to get closer for a bet er look or smell, and they wind up being bit en—usually on the face or neck. Facial bites are oſt en more lethal as the swelling may occlude the throat or impair the ability to breathe. Rat lesnake bites can be deadly to a dog and very expensive to treat. Since 1991 Gina Gables of Ma & Paw Kennel Canine Training Services in Simi Valley, has been training dogs (and their owners!) and conducting R.A.T. clinics across many Southern and Central California counties. The company off ers what many satisfi ed dog owners agree is the most humane, com- prehensive and eff ective R.A.T. for dogs available. Counties served include San Luis Obispo,


Santa Barbara, Fresno, Ventura, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, Kern, Inyo, Orange and San Diego.
