    Beware of purchasing a DAD from Beth Eden Kennels, formerly in Amarillo Tx, now in Oklahoma City. These dogs are insufficiently trained. Many have been returned for failure to alert, biting, and other issues. No money has been refunded to these people. Several clients claim satisfaction with their dogs but also admit to issues such as inconsistent alerts, growling, pulling on leash, pooping in the house. Alerting alone does not make the dog a Service Dog.

    Hi, I am new to this forum, but not the disease:)

    I am a 46 year old Juv. diabetic. I got my first pump 5 years ago, and there is no better method for a diabetic. So obviously I use Humalog, and yes it is the best product on the market, but takes some getting used to. I also have an alert dog, and He is the best. My life was so blessed once I got Him. He is trained well, and bonded with me right away(2-3 days after introduction).Since I have owned him, 0 paramedic calls. Before getting him. 2-3 times a month easily. I know a lot of people who have dogs for the same purpose, and honestly. The insufficiency usually is the person, or people. Not the dog. I say usually, but not always. Perfection is not obtainable on earth. Just in your mind. Hope all is well with those suffering from the curse! It can get better.....

    Hello NK:

    Ever explored the B.G.A.T. work (Blood Glucose Awareness Training) by Dr. Cox and others out of UVA ? As I understand it they retrain us to re-recognize symptoms we often overlook.
