Some call it snake proofing / snakeproofing (no such thing actually as 'snakeproofing'), some call it desnaking or de-snaking, but whatever you want to call it, we do it right!  Snake proof is actually misnomer.  What it does is take the curiosity out of the dog with regard to sight, sound and smell of poisonous snakes.

We teach dogs to avoid rattlesnakes and copperheads by sight, sound, and smell!  We use live rattlesnakes and live copperhead snakes, large and small.  Both species of snakes are indigenous to Texas and responsible for the majority of snake bites in bobwhite quail country.

If your dog is old enough to get bit, it's old enough to have snake avoidance training!  Because we have over a decade of experience, we tailor the de-snaking process to the personality and age of the dog.

  Any breed is welcome!  If your toy breed lives in snake country, they can be bitten.  We strongly recommend desnaking plus snake vaccine.

Walk-ins from 8:00 a.m. until noon, no appointment necessary.  50 dollars per dog for the life of that dog - pay once per dog and that dog gets free rechecks for the rest of it's life every year at our annual snake avoidance clinic!

Rattlesnake vaccine (crotalus toxoid) will be on hand to vaccinate your dog.  Bring a cooler so that the second dose (for first time snake vaccinated dogs) can be administered 30 days later.  Also, now that Texas has a mandatory scan requirement for shelters, we offer Microchipping (40 dollars)

Hundreds and hundreds of happy clients from previous clinics - you'll see them at the clinic getting their dogs rechecked for free!
