What is a Trained Diabetic Alert Service Dog?

 

  • Trained Diabetic Alert Dogs are certified service dogs for Diabetics. These amazing dogs alert their owners in advance of low (hypoglycemia) or high (hyperglycemia) blood sugar events before they become dangerous, so that their owners may take steps to return their blood sugar levels to normal, such as using glucose sweets or taking insulin. These dogs are specifically trained to react to the chemical change produced by blood sugar highs and lows. Diabetic Alert Dogs can provide emotional security and a sense of balance for individuals and their families. Diabetic Alert Dogs can help their handlers lead a more confident and independent lifestyle.

Complete All Inclusive Training

 

  • At Diabetic Alert Dogs of America our dogs are a big part of our family. We use positive reinforcement training methods. We focus on rewarding good behavior and correcting the unwanted behavior. Our trained service dogs go through a vigorous training schedule that consists of obedience/socialization, public access, and scent training. We use the same methods that the FBI and ATF use to train their scent detection working dogs. Our dogs train at various times throughout the day, including night time alerts. Night training is the most important step. We will teach your dog to remain alert for your blood sugar levels while you are asleep. They will be taught an additional step in order to wake you up in the event of an out-of-range BG level.
