High on Kennels’ clinics are conducted in a safe, humane, and controlled environment ensuring the safety of your dog, people, and rattlesnakes. Using live, neutralized, local snakes, dogs will learn to identify and avoid the sight, sound, or scent of a rattlesnake (rattlesnakes have a distinct odor that dogs can discern from other snakes).

Clinic Details :

  • The cost of the clinic is $80 per dog
  • The number of appointments for the weekend are limited
  • It will be held at Kindred Spirits’ training field at 3343 East Vista Way in Vista.
  • It will take about an hour, a little more for multiple dogs. We’ll have shade and chairs setup, and of course water bowls.
