Appointment information:

The clinic will be held at Kindred Spirits’ training field, 3343 E. Vista Way in Vista. Parking is available in designated areas. At the clinic:

  • Please arrive on time as appointments are tightly scheduled.
  • Please come to your appointment with your dog on leash and collar.
  • Please avoid dog to dog contact as the other dogs going through training may be nervous.
  • Plan for your appointment to take about an hour. This assures that proper attention is given to all dogs. If you have multiple dogs it will take a little bit longer.

There will be a check-in table just inside the field entrance gate. After completing check-in paperwork, you and your dog will be directed to a shaded pen in a waiting area. A handler will come and get your dog when it is your dog’s turn. Your dog will be handled by an experienced handler. The trainer follows the handler and the dog and stimulates the dog as it encounters a rattlesnake.



If you need to cancel, please give us advance notice if possible so we can let our students know about the opening. No refunds will be issued for cancellations received within 7 days of the event.

ATTENTION: Heavy rain will cancel the clinic.
No cameras or videotaping allowed.
