If you live in an area with rattlesnakes, which Montana has a lot of areas with them, this should interest you:

The Yellowstone Pointing Dog Club is holding a snake-breaking clinic at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 10, at Thunder Ridge Kennels (east of Billings at 4210 Highway 312).

Austin Turley and John Mciltrot, a professional dog trainer, will teach participating dogs to avoid rattlesnakes through safe and proven methods. The entire process takes a few minutes but lasts a lifetime.

The cost is $50 per dog or $25 per dog for a re-test, which is much less than the vet bills associated with a rattlesnake bite.

Anyone who hunts, works stock, or hikes with dogs in areas that might have rattlesnakes is encouraged to attend. Call Marshall Phil at 860-4617 or Jonatha Gonitzke at 670-9002 for more information or directions.
