Despite the soggy weather, summer is right around the corner!

It's time for hikers and trail runners to be on the lookout for rattlesnakes--and the same goes for their dogs!

A rattlesnake avoidance training course is coming up tomorrow and again in two weeks. Separate training sessions will also teach dogs how to steer clear of skunks and porcupines.

The Idaho Chukar Foundation is hosting the events at Julia Davis Park. You can only register your dog for one avoidance session because experts say multiple training sessions in the same day is too much stimulation for a dog.

There is a fee associated with the course.
