Thank you David & Jenny for taking the time to come and run this training in Nannup – you have no idea how much we appreciate it!
While we hope to not have to put Loki & Ruby’s training into practice, and we know there are no guarantees about what might happen if we do encounter a snake, you have given us an insight into how they might react (hopefully Ruby will NOT jump when startled and land on the snake – we think she got the idea with the second encounter!).
Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you for some follow-up training.

Jane, Loki & Ruby, Brittanys
We travel a lot and the training saved her life at the camping nodes near Green Head where we encountered a 3m Dugite directly under our caravan – thank you.

Thanks for setting this up for me. Your guys were real rock stars yesterday and were so gentle with the dogs as well as my children. With amazing results.
10 out of 10 for service, communication and results. Thanks a ton.

Last year we did your course with our dog Hank and it was fantastic. We were even able to put Hank’s training to the test when a big brown snake decided to show up on our lawn. Hank got one wiff and ran inside!!

Thanks guys, Clancy and I did your course and a few months later we had an encounter with a dugite on our veranda. Clancy a JR has an inclination to attack skinks so I was surprised and relieved to hear him give a growl, back off and stand in the point position. On calling him he immediately returned to my side. Cheers and thanks. Bob

Just a quick note to let you know that before Riley did the training course we hadn’t seen a snake on any of our walks, however since – we have seen 3!!! lol

I do want to tell you about the second time as it was a reflection of Rileys training that she learnt from you. We were heading back up the path at the Rockingham dog beach and Riley barked and jumped back from a snake moving along the green garden mesh that stops the sand from covering the path – the snake was dune side, so no-one was in imminent danger. However Rileys reaction was all we could have hoped for from her training and I am certain she is in a better position to remove herself from harmful situations in the future.

Just wanted to say thanks and give you this feedback.

Just a quick note of thanks for the Snake Avoidance Training for Dogs class you did in Margs on Monday this week. As David said – humans get programmed by TV and social media to be afraid of snakes, dogs don’t. Of course they’ll be inquisitive. I wanted to say I found it very professionally done and would definitely recommend your class to people.

Probably three weeks after the training we had an actual encounter out on the farm with a live snake.

Normally she would go straight for the snake, but she saw it and she stopped and she took a really wide berth, maybe 15 or 20m around and away from it, and just sat and watched it until it departed.

It was worth every cent.

Your training is a wonderful win-win solution to a very concerning problem.

We are so glad we got her trained, as we came across a big dugite last summer, and if it hadn’t been for Dimi stopping in her tracks, I probably would have stepped on it not paying attention, so definitely well worth it!

I can highly recommend Animal Ark snake avoidance training; my Kelpie cross Ruby, 9 months old and a very full on dog, wouldn’t chase sheep up the race the other day because there was a dugite up there. Couldn’t have asked for a better reaction; we didn’t see it at first, but she knew it was there.
