Avoiding being scammed!
Do not let your dog become a victim of a scammer!
Done properly, canine snake avoidance works well.
If not done properly, you are wasting your time and money.
In late 2017, a number of unlicensed scammers, started marketing dog snake aversion training that put simply cannot work!
Ripping off the registered trademarks of the Snakeman Raymond Hoser, they are unlawfully marketing via Facebook and other sites supposedly licensed "Snake Avoidance" training for dogs.
None of these people are in fact appropriately licensed and this is in spite of their online claims!
They continue to scam innocent victims, taking cash and effectively killing people's pets in breach of court issued restraining orders like the example posted here (see conditions 4 and 8).
None of them use venomous species of snakes in their training as none have the expertise to have surgically devenomized deadly snakes, which are the only snakes that can be used for proper venomous snake avoidance training.
Instead these law-breaking imitators are training dogs using non-venomous python snakes.
Pythons diverged from venomous snakes more than 100 million years ago and so look and smell very different to the venomous snakes. As pythons smell radically different to venomous snakes and dogs have a sense of smell many times better than humans, most dogs trained to avoid pythons will not avoid venomous snakes. Put simply, the training is a waste of time and does not work!
Within months of these unlicensed people training dogs in Victoria to avoid snakes using pythons, a number of "trained" dogs attacked venomous Tiger Snakes or Copperheads that entered properties. Some died and a number of owners also got hit with vet bills in the range of 2-10 thousand dollars. In some cases the vet treatment did not save the snakes.
One woman who got scammed by an unlicensed imitator east of Melbourne, had her dog attack and injure a large Tiger Snake that entered the property just weeks after being trained to avoid a python. The dog was rushed to an emregency veterinary surgery clinic and in spite of the best 24/7 efforts of the veterinary surgeons and a resulting vet bill of just over $10,000.00 (ten thousand dollars), the 4 year old Staffy did not survive.
Save your cash and do not get your dog trained by a scammer who does not use vet certified surgically devenomized snakes of the species found in the area that you live in.
Only the Snakeman Raymond Hoser and dog trainers who work with him have access to these snakes and all other snake aversion training is not effective.
