Diabetes Service Dogs

Wild Rose Kennels is a company that trains gun dogs or “adventure dogs” that you can take camping – and they won’t eat your hot dogs or chase squirrels or deer. Hiking, biking, boating people are looking for dogs that are sporting companions and well trained. They also add training to make diabetes-alert dogs. They can tell when their owner’s blood sugar is too low or too high and make a sign to tell the owner. These cross-trained dogs are considered duality dogs. The trainers don’t use force or electric collars in their training. There is a lot of structure, positive reinforcement, repetition and consistency.  His advice for training your own dog? Be consistent.
