TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)- There are two things you wouldn't want your dog to get bit by while hiking: rattlesnakes and traps.

That is why the Idaho Department of Fish and Game will be hosting their annual rattlesnake and trap avoidance training for dogs in Boise on June 12th, which is a Sunday. The event will be held at the Veteran’s Memorial Park beginning at 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There is a fee for registration.

"Most dog owners are unfamiliar with traps of any kind," Fish and Game conservation officer Kurt Stieglitz noted. "This seminar will provide them with some very practical tools related to trapping, including the steps to take if a pet dog ever ends up in a trap."
