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

Butch Nelson, a professional dog trainer, will teach participating dogs to avoid rattlesnakes through safe and proven methods. The entire process only takes a few minutes but lasts a lifetime.

The cost is $35 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 Les Pfeifer at 406-321-0205 for answers to questions and for directions.
