Clever Dog Company - Sarah Whitehead

Wow - beautiful, but a very good reason to train your dog a reliable leave it'. Thank you Completely Mutz Dog TrainigI saw this beautiful adder this morning whilst out walking Reggie.

Luckily I’ve taught him ‘leave it’ so he backed away and sat down which gave me the chance to get my phone out fiddle around getting the camera started and was able to take this photo!

It’s also an indication of how slow adders can be when waking up from hibernation - this is the time to be extra vigilant when walking your dog - a curious dog could easily have been bitten by this one this morning

Good example of a real life situation where teaching your dog a simple trick like ‘leave it’ pays dividends

I’ve just heard that a local vet has treated about four dogs for adder bites in recent days - very distressing for dog, owner... and it’s not cheap
