Studies have shown that a dog’s scent is 40 times greater than ours, with 300 million olfactory receptors in their noses. This is believed to be a huge contributing factor to their abilities in detection of medical ailments such as seizures and diabetes, as well as dogs have also been proven to detect cancer and other diseases in humans. Medical alert and response dogs have saved countless lives in our program and programs like ours, which is why they are becoming increasingly higher in demand. Not all dogs can do medical alert but most can be trained to effectively respond in situations where the handler cannot. Such as, retrieving medications, finding a loved one, providing compression, and even administering CPR.
We have had extraordinary results in our medical response and alert dogs, please refer to the categories below for more information.
