Snakes do you love them or hate them? The photo here is of my sweet dog, Missy, who is just back home after being bitten by a deadly brown snake yesterday. The vet clinic saved her but it sure makes me hate snakes even more now!

I like snakes. I'd rather not have dangerous ones (brown snakes, mainly) in my yard or house (the best you can really do is try and keep the yard clear of places for them to hide), but I have no problem with tree snakes, pythons etc. I am teaching my kids to leave them alone and come and tell me when they see one. They are native animals with an important place in our ecosystem (the snakes I mean, not my kids).
Yes, it's good to teach your kids the best and safest way to deal with snakes. If only I could teach my hounds to leave them alone...
Yeah, I don't know how you do that. Our family dog killed a King Brown once, thankfully without being bitten.
I recognise that snakes play an important role in our ecosystems and, for that, I can appreciate them. But, I don't like them on or around my property.

No Vee, I don't like them on my property either, and certainly not in my backyard where my dogs go. Three of my dogs are Pharaoh Hounds, a breed of dog that just lives to chase and try to kill, and then eat prey.
I wish they would leave snakes alone, I certainly can't afford to have a snake bite victim treated again...

Oh no. Best of luck with the warmer months. Hopefully the snakes stay away fro m your dogs and your dogs stay away from the snakes!

Im not only way or the other about them. I am quite happy to watch them, but a little nervous about touching them. That doesn't mean I dislike them though.
I am scared of snakes, especially poisonous ones. I would freak if there was one in my house!
I've never had one in my house, but have cerrtainly had them in my backyard, quite close to the house ... Venomous ones, brown snakes.
Don't like snakes, but they have a place in the environment
Neither. Have only seen them when bushwalking, & I walk a fair way away from them.
I just leave them alone, & hopefully, they'll return the favour!
