If you own a dog, especially a hunting dog and live in a part of the country that has poisonous snakes then you should train your dog to avoid all snakes. Unlike people dogs cannot wear snake boots to protect themselves from the fangs of a pit viper that lives nearby. Dogs by their nature a curious about everything including snakes. It only takes a second for a dog to be struck in the muzzle or the eye and you have a serious problem.
Hunting dog training that includes snake avoidance will reduce the chances that your dog will be bit by a poisonous snake. Snake avoidance training is a specialty that requires the trainer to be very comfortable in handling snakes. Several hunting dog training specialists located in the South and West train their prize hunting dogs during the regular obedience training. They would never risk their dog and all the time and effort they have invested by ignoring this serious problem.
We have bird dogs and during their early hunting dog training we introduce them to snakes. In many case catching a local non poisonous snake is the first step in snake avoidance. Placing a freshly caught snake in front of puppy will cause the snake to strike the dog repeatedly. It is important not to say anything to the dog during this avoidance training. Frequently this will cause the pup to avoid snakes for the rest of their lives. However this procedure frequently needs to be followed up with additional training methods.
It must be understood that hunting dog training that includes snake avoidance is no guarantee that your dog will not be struck by a poisonous snake. In many cases as the dog works the cover it will surprise a snake and be struck. However frequently these initial strikes do not carry a large dose of venom and are used by the snake to warn the intruder off. An untrained dog will frequently turn on the snake and be struck again with a full load of venom which may kill or blind a dog. In most cases a trained dog will immediately leave the snake alone and continue hunting.
In every case whenever your dog encounters a snake it should be examined closely. Hunting dogs should be put up and observed for any swelling or signs of a bite. Many Vets will provide you with the first aid medicines that you need to treat your dog in the field. If you have any doubts about a snake bite you should contact your Vet immediately. If you love your dog then you will invest in the time and effort to properly train it in snake avoidance. Hunting Dog training that includes snake avoidance only make sense and will save you heartache, time and money.

Snakes. Just the mention of the word can send chills up the spine or send one fleeing in the opposite direction. To some they are just scary, slithery, sinister serpents. However, they are also sneaky. Yes, sneaky. The serpent has been known for its sneakiness since the beginning. Remember Eve? It was because of the sneaky sales pitch of the serpent that Eve "bought", Adam "bit" , and they were both "booted out" of the Garden of Eden. Oh yes, snakes can be extremely sneaky, and can show their craftiness in a variety of ways.
The American Copperhead is a great example of a cunning culprit. This snake has a rust and copper colored body with dark crisscrossing bands. It has a bright copper colored head, hence the name, Copperhead. This snake is easily recognizable, that is if you see it. Because of the snake's markings, they are easily hidden. Let this snake curl up on a pile of fallen leaves and you may never even know it was there. Pretty slick huh? But that's not all. These snakes learn how to be masters of guile at a very early age, as a matter of fact from the moment they are born. The baby Copperhead is born with a yellow tipped tail which it uses to lure unsuspecting prey. The juvenile snake hides beneath the leaves and sticks its wiggling tail up. The tail, resembling a grubworm, attracts moles, mice, and other such rodents. When the small mixed-up mammals take the bait, the clever Copperhead enjoys his dinner.
Yes, snakes are still as sneaky as ever. They still bewilder, beguile, and sometimes even bewitch. They are masters of disguise as well as masters of deception and they probably always will be. So if you happen up on one of these "sneaky snakes", just acknowledge, admire, and then allow him to do his thing.

I have seen hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to people's homes. This damage was not caused by storms or fires or high water. The damage I see is caused by wild animals. Sometimes homeowner insurance covers the loss. Often times it doesn't.
I own and operate a nuisance wildlife removal service in Flint, Michigan. In this article I will review two actual cases of animal damage for you. These two cases combined cost these two homeowners almost $20,000.
The first situation involved a family that took a month long vacation from their home in Flint, Michigan. They rented a house for a month and had a wonderful time in sunny Florida. Upon their return they found their house ransacked. Chairs were tipped over, pictures were ripped from the walls, and the curtains and drapes were ripped to shreds. Every item on every shelf and had been flung to the floor. Boxes of cereal and other food were ripped open and the contents scattered all over the floors. The heartbreak really sunk in when they saw that the vandals had broken every Royal Daulton (a very expensive collectable) that they had is a large display cabinet.
Most homeowner insurance policies cover damage created by bats. Some even cover the expense of removing the bats. She turned in her claim and was turned down flat. Her policy specifically stated that rodent and bat damage are not listed for coverage.
Both of these two animal damage situations could have been prevented with a http://www.advanced-wildlife-control.com/Preventative%20home%20inspection.htm ">Preventative Home Inspection.
It's time, right now, for you to call your insurance agent. Ask if you would have been covered by either of these instances. Review your policy and ask if any animal damage is specifically excluded.
I do not sell insurance. I am a homeowner and I have insurance for my own home. I know that it's not on the top of your list to make that call to your insurance agent. You may be glad at a later date that you took the time to do it.
Now go make that call.
