Did you know treatment for a Snake Bite by a venomous snake is at a minimum $3000 and there is no guarantee your K-9 companion will recover!


David “The Cobra Kid” Weathers and Florida Palmetto NAVHDA Present:

Snake Avoidance Clinic,  December 8th, 2018

Florida Palmetto Navhda has partnered with World Famous Licensed Venomous Snake Handler David “The Cobra Kid” Weathers for our new and improved Snake Clinic. David will be providing and handling several native snakes which will be contained in a safe environment and placed in normal hunting situations in the field. The snakes will be moved so each handler and dog will have new scent.   We will also be adding the element of verbal command, which in a real life situation a handler would obviously react to a snake verbally as a natural reaction.  As handlers we all know our dogs react to our emotions and this is an important element to the new training.  Snake Avoidance training is designed to protect the Dog and the Handler as our Intelligent K-9 Friends will alert us of a snakes presence as there powerful noses  possess up to 300 million olfactory receptors in their noses, compared to about six million in the human nose.  David will also educate us on Snakes and the distinct smell, characteristics and habitat of each type of Snake in natural environments.  

Who Should Attend:

Anyone, this is not just for member bird dogs! This Training session is open to any dogs who could benefit , Hog dogs, Deer Dogs, waterfowl Retrievers, cattle dogs, Herders, or even your home companion.
