A gentleman purchasing a puppy from me referred me to the site, very enlightening! Sugar Dogs International, Inc. | Diabetic Alert Service Dogs

Default Poodles know

Part of my condition is that my body cannot regulate my blood sugar... A few years ago a doctor put me on a high dose of metformen which is used to lower blood sugar, and did not bother to see if I was diabetic he just did it... Since then I cannot control my sugar. I can be very high, as I have been the past couple days... yesterday was very bad, as I was up over 400 most of the day. But other times, my blood sugar will drop very low quickly. Remington catches this... When it is high, and I feel like poo he will lay in bed and cuddle with me usually leaning up and very carefully licking my cheek or forhead... He sniffs me every few mins. when I am like this. On the other hand when my sugar drops, he nips my tummy. I know I don't need to say this to you all, because you already know, but I am going to anyway... Aren't our poodles amazing.

Thankfully I have no need for this type of service dog, but I used to know a woman that had a daschund that alerted her for diabetes. I thought it was amazing...and I still do. How wonderful that our dogs can be so intuitive.

I personally would love to train Gryphon to assist me with some of my problems, I am just unsure of how to do it.

It is amazing how much is instictive to them. Remington was the one who caught falling blood sugar for me, there was no training... I am leaning on him more and more...

Amazingly, self-taught is what this gentleman relayed to me as well. It took HIM awhile to figure out that his 8 month old female Standard Poodle was alerting him to. I LOVE where it says in the article that "no breed alerts as reliably as a Poodle". Speaks VOLUMES of the breed's intuitive capabilities..who KNOWS what we are missing? His pup from me is only two weeks of age right now, but he is coming to "let the pup pick him" (as advised by Sugardog personnel) next week. I will be intrigued to follow their progress as she grows up. As many breeders (of different breeds) select their breeding dogs from performance stock, makes me wonder if one could actually breed towards a more likely candidate for diabetic alert...interesting, I think.

Very interesting. I don't crash as much or as badly as I have in the past. I'm fortunate there.

But I suppose it would be ok to put this on the Am. Diabetes message board? Some there could really use some extra help.

After poking around this site, I realized this is the rescue group we got our apricot mini from! Probably in 97 or 98.

Good people, can recommend they really do love the breed! They are in St Petersburg Fl
