Melanie Elizabeth


Snake avoidance

As a Search Dog Handler, Melanie regularly trains in both urban and rural settings.

During her rural training Melanie identified a snake bite as the most conceivable risk to her and her working dog.

After serious consideration she decided that gambling on the uncertain outcome of a snake bite was somewhat avoidable.

She then became the driving force behind the development of our effective Canine Snake Avoidance Program.
