Diabetes alert dogs (DAD) - This webinar will discuss selecting and identifying dogs with the required personality traits for diabetes alert detection, from breeding programs to shelter and rescue dogs. We’ll also explore the pros and cons of working with owner dogs. DADs have gained increased attention recently, and more and more trainers have become interested in training such dogs. With different backgrounds, we also see differences in training approaches, in sample collection, or in types of alerts. Many questions are still unanswered, as we are working with substances that we can’t control or detect.  What we do know is that there is a smell associated with the changes in glucose levels and that we can train the dog to let us know when a change occurs. We’ll describe how and what DADs are trained for. We’ll also discuss the importance of establishing standards of training in this growing field.
