Eighty dogs in Reno, Nevada, now know what to do when they see a rattlesnake: Run! When they tried to get close to snakes let loose by a licensed snake handler, the dogs were jolted by remote control through electronic collars. Nevada Wildlife, the publication of the Nevada Wildlife Federation, says most dogs learn in about 15 minutes that rattlers are best left alone.
