We have spotted two large dead rattle snakes in the neighborhood during the last couple of weeks. As the temperature at night drops into the 60’s and 50’s, these venomous snakes may seek warmth on the neighborhood streets.
Bring a flashlight on evening walks. Also, consider Professional Snake Avoidance Classes for your Dog. We are not associated with, nor do we endorse the one in the link above, but we are sending a dog to this one for training.
The snake in the photo was one we encountered while walking another dog in the Rillito River in Tucson. We never saw it as we walked right up to it and were close enough for it to strike. They stay so well hidden in the shadows.
So, be cautious out there!

If you are visiting Scottsdale, or it has been a while since you have been up to the McDowell Mountain Recreation Park, make sure to walk the Gateway Trail (off Thompson Peak Parkway) at Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve. It is not a difficult walk/hike and you will get to experience the Sonoran Desert at its best. You can also bike and bring your dog (on a leash). There is an information center with clean bathrooms too.
