Keep your dog safe this camping season
We have been wanting to bring our dog camping with us but with living in Southern California and the amount of rattlesnakes out, that makes it hard for us to bring her! If you love to hike or camp with your pouch, here are 4 quick tips to make sure they are safe!
- Put your dog on a leash! And not a long leash- try a 6 foot leash- just in case you need to quickly pull them back!
- Teach your dog the “leave it” or “drop it” command. If your pet listens to you, it could save their life!
- Avoid rocks and thick brush- if you don’t want to get bit, don’t go walkin’ on their house!
- Invest in the Canine Rattlesnake Vaccine. If a rattlesnake does attack, it won’t prevent the venom from going through their body but it does slow down the process! You still have to take them to the nearest vet!
