Our Diabetic Alert dogs are quick to respond and are very enthusiastic about doing their job. Because we expect our dogs to perform with over 90% accuracy, we may limit our Diabetic Alert dogs to 4 different areas of service if they are intended to be a multi role Service Dog that will not only function as a Diabetic Alert dog, but will also function in other areas if needed.
Our Diabetic Alert dogs are trained to alert you in the event that your blood sugar climbs to a level of 160+ and or drops to a level of under 80. This alert will be a pawing from the dog or the dog will jump on you to alert you. You may request that the dog is trained to alert you in another way if pawing or jumping is not in line with your lifestyle or situation.
Because we respect your privacy and believe the public should as well, we believe and understand that displaying your specific area of disability on your Service Dog may be uncomfortable and an invasion of privacy when out in public. The public has the right to know if the dog is necessary for you but does not have a right to invade your privacy by demanding specifics about your disability. Because of this, we may upon request classify all the areas of disability we service for you under Medical Service Dog or Medical Assist Service Dog for identification purposes on your Service Dog.
All our dogs no matter what training program or multi function training program you choose may be trained in the “GET HELP” or “CALL FOR HELP” feature. Call us and ask us for more details. 978-855-6415
