The only dog/wild snake interaction I've had was firmly ordering a dog to stop shaking to death a large bullsnake he'd found. However, sighthounds are extremely game and kind of go crazy and don't listen to you when they've caught something. The snake did not survive. While saddened, I was a bit impressed that the bullsnake's size, loud threat display and copious biting did not faze the dog at all. I wasn't as knowledgeable about sighthounds at the time. I've now come to understanded that dogs who course and race at a competitive level need to be muzzled when walked because they are very tightly wound.
