Snake season is all-year-round in Ojai! The Ojai Valley Land Conservancy is hosting a rattlesnake avoidance training clinic for dogs so you can take your dog outdoors with peace of mind.

Don’t forget to tell your friends and other dog lovers about the clinic!


We are proud to host expert dog trainers from High on Kennels. Each trainer is highly experienced at training dogs to avoid rattlesnakes. High on Kennels is well known for being a problem solver when it comes to difficult dogs.

Training Process

Our training clinics are conducted in a safe, humane, and controlled environment ensuring the safety of your dog, people, and rattlesnakes. The trainers have found that the best way to teach a dog to avoid rattlesnakes is to use live rattlesnake specimens that have been neutralized so that they cannot bite. The snakes are placed out in a field setting and the dogs are fitted with an electronic training collar. The dog is led through the field and allowed to encounter the rattlesnake at which point the dog is stimulated using the electronic collar. The training process is repeated several times to assure you that your dog will understand the sight, sound, and smell of a rattlesnake (they have a distinct odor that dogs can discern from other snakes).
