Are snakes attracted to dogs?
They are also attracted to safe, quiet places where they can hide as well as food and water sources, so don't leave your dog/cat food out all day to attract a hungry snake.
There is no way to keep your pets away from snakes, as it can be their natural instinct to hunt them down.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
