I am from Europe and not at all used to snakes and although my dog is an Ozzie, I don't think she knows how to avoid one. As we live rural I am absolutely terrified that when it warms up she will get bitten by a snake.
Can you please give me advise on how to teach her to stay away from snakes. Are there any devices that can keep snakes away from the fenced area my dog is usually in?
When are snakes usually most active? Where do they hang out and where don't they like to go?
Any advise will help. Its not summer yet, but spring is around the corner and I do not want to loose my dog! She is a 12 month old Golden Retriever.
