DOGS4DIABETICS, INC.

Dennis and I volunteer our time in support of the work at Dogs4Diabetics. Dogs4Diabetics (D4D) as indicated in their brochure is an innovative nonprofit organization that trains assistance dogs to recognize and alert on low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) in insulin-dependent diabetics. The D4D dogs save lives because they provide a critical early alert impending low blood sugar. With their astonishing sense of smell, D4D dogs can reliably and accurately alert their partners to dropping blood sugar - something even the most advanced medical equipment still cannot do! Dogs4Diabetics creates lasting partnerships through a program of training, placement and follow-up support. With the help of D4D dogs, insulin-dependent diabetics now have 24/7, real-time partner in detecting drops in blood sugar.

The service dog is hangin with Dave & Dennis

The service dog goes to school for training at Dogs4Diabetics during the week but he has been permitted to stay with Dennis and I temporarily during his nights and weekends. We enjoy having the service dog in our home while he is in training. We take him on walks, play games and help keep the good discipline, habits and behavior in place that he learns from his training. We are happy to have the opportunity to volunteer and hopefully see this service dog make a special contribution to the life of a diabetic partner.
