Our goal is to transparentize the field of Diabetic Alert Dogs and enable individuals with diabetes to train their own Diabetic Alert Dogs. Because of this both our book and video series are completely free! 1-one-1 virtual trainer assistance varies based on duration and frequencies of meetings.
Potentially! Read our book and watch the video “Choosing a Dog” to learn more about whether your dog may be a good candidate to train as your Diabetic Alert Dog.
Yes! Rescue dogs can become successful Diabetic Alert Dogs. However, just as not every child wants to be a brain surgeon when they grow up, not every dog wants to be a Diabetic Alert Dog. To find out how to perform temperament testing and find the right dog for the job, read the sections in our book and watch the video on “Choosing a Dog” found in the links above.
Currently we do not provide fully trained Diabetic Alert Dogs and are unable to assist with this process.
Our organization runs because of your generous donations. We are incredibly grateful to those who are able to financially support us, allowing us to continue creating and releasing materials that are free to the public. A donation link can be found at the bottom of the page if you are able to help!
Even if you cannot donate, if you have used MD Dogs materials we would love to hear your success story and share it with others to spread the word. If you’d like to share your story with us please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
