Colorado is home to many rattlesnakes.  Every year, veterinarians treat dogs that have been bitten on local hiking trails.  In fact, a dog died from a rattlesnake bite in Castlewood Canyon State Park back in 2011.  But you can help your dog avoid a potentially deadly encounter by attending a Rattlesnake Avoidance Clinic.  It’s being featured this weekend at the International Sportsmen’s Exposition in Denver.  You can register for the training at ColoradoGunDog.org.
