Providing Dog Guides to Canadians with Disabilities
Diabetic Alert
Diabetic Alert Dog Guides assist people aged 10 or older who are insulin dependant with hypoglycemic unawareness. They are trained to detect sudden drops in their handlerís blood sugar through scent and alert them so that they can ingest something sweet. They can go get help within the home or activate an alert system if needed. Their ability to detect and react to hypoglycemic episodes helps their handlerís avoid loss of consciousness and subsequent life-threatening effects. Ultimately, these specially trained Dog Guides provide increased safety, security and independence.
