Vets are warning pet owners of a long hot summer this year and especially pet owners on rural properties!. Snakes!!! Paul & I have to be so careful this is Oscar & Sam's first summer as country dogs!. It is the brown & black snakes that we have to watch out for our vet has told us when we are out with them don't let them out of our sight and just be more diligent and maybe keep them on the verandah so they can't get up to any mischief!.

I was asked if we have aversion training classes for Australian serpents not that I'm aware of must check up on it though!. We have a devise here that is similar to a solar outdoor light you place them at a distance for the house and around a perimeter of the house they send out a vibration of some type that a snake hates and it's supposed to keep them away?. We had 20 solar panels put on the roof a week ago and the electrician went into the roof and came out with a look of horror on his face he said there was a snake in the roof I shot off thank goodness it was dead it had been up there for a long time the smell I disposed of it the next day Yuk!!!!.

I had one in my kitchen last week! It was a baby one, but I have seen some very large adult snake skins in the yard and woods around my house. We also have wild turkeys that are bat-shit crazy so she has learned to tune out the more bizarre creatures including on small snake in the yard that tried to coil and strike. Thank God we don't have many poisonous snakes in New England. Sully seems to ignore them, but they might not ignore her.

At first I thought this was an old post until I looked and saw you are in Australia. WE had a really mild summer here in California until September, then it got very hot. It is just starting to cool down even though Autumn has officially begun. Here in Calif we get a lot of rattlesnakes, so we have rattlesnake aversion training classes. DO they offer anything like that for Australia's serpents?

Ick.  This is a good warning, we had a lot of snakes here in Texas this year. You really do have to keep an eye on them.
