Rattlesnake and Porcupine Avoidance Training

  • Julia Davis Park 700 S Capitol Boulevard Boise, ID, 83705 United States
The Idaho Chukar Foundation and Idaho Humane Society offer a class each year that's designed to teach dogs to avoid the sight, sound and smell of rattlesnakes. This year, we're adding porcupine avoidance training as well.  Training sessions for 2016 will take place between 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 4, at Julia Davis Park in Boise. 
Porcupine aversion training for dogs has been shown to be safe and effective in helping prevent dogs getting quilled. Animal Behaviorist suggests that every dog can be trained to avoid being struck by a porcupine with quills. ICFI/IHS confirms that both the dogs and porcupines will be humanely treated during the training process. (Porcupines used during the porcupine avoidance training are all from Idaho and captured and released in the same location they are found.) Upland bird hunters and outdoor people can expose their dogs to a variety of wildlife. Not only may porcupines be found, but rattlesnakes as well. 

This year All Valley Animal Care Center will be sponsoring the annual Rattlesnake and Porcupine Avoidance Training class! The Idaho Chukar Foundation and Idaho Humane Society offer a class each year that's designed to teach dogs to avoid the sight, sound and smell of rattlesnakes.
