    Great advice. I still haven't done it with my dogs, mostly 'cause I forget until I see a snake. Fortunately I haven't had any issues, but don't rely on dumb luck like me.

    We did it with our dog. They use an electric collar and beep/low shock the dog as they get close to the snake, which is defanged. The place we used after initial round of sniffing the snake on a mat, then put the snake out in the grass and had us walk in that general direction. My dog was a star pupil and immediately started pulling away from the direction of the snake; wouldn't go near it. There was a 1 yr old Greater Swiss Mtn dog that failed the class though. That dog had no clue where the snake was and basically stepped on it when it was in the grass. Then tried to pick it up. That was even as they were using the e-collar and shocking him. Really funny.
    Another place that does it locally is https://liveoakdogobedienceutah.com/ in Sandy.
