Do dogs scare snakes?
Normally, snakes will go out of their way to avoid you, and if you spot one, it's best to lead your dog or cat away if you can.
However, dogs and cats are usually curious by nature.
A lot also have natural hunting instincts that will cause them to go after a snake rather than avoid it.
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.
