Hello everyone I am new to this site and glad to have found this site. I have Luke a 10 year old type 1 with down syndrome. He has been fortunate enough to have a therapy dog at school that belongs to his teacher that alerts his hander that my son is low or high in his blood sugars. This will be their last year together. I have been looking for a service medical dog that could help us at home as well as school. Too make a long story short our teacher got us a chance to purchase a chacolate lab pup that is a cousin to the therapy dog at school. He arrives on Sept. 5th. I am still not sure what to name him since he will have such a special job. I need anyone that knows of any type of training I could get for daibetic awarness in New Mexcio. I am going to do all the training of this service dog with the help of this trainer. She and I wanted to train our pups to be medical service dogs that can alert us of my sons lows and highs. He is very brittle and needs 1:1 24 hours a day. Any advice will be greatlly appreicated. I noticed many of you are trying to do the same thing I am going to attempt. Please share your input, information, or just how it is going with your service dog helper.
