I have exciting news. The University of California at Irvine is taking air samples and testing them in a gas chromatograph mass spectrometer. They are trying to determine exactly what (our migraine alert dog) is smelling.
This Weeks Medical Alert Dog Monday Youtube Video question comes from Jason from Chicago Illinois. He writes, “I am interested in purchasing an alert dog. There’s a company out in Virginia that offers guarantees on it’s diabetic alert dogs. The thought of a guarantee is very appealing to me. I see that you do not have guarantees on your already trained dogs or your training classes. Why is that?”
I know that warranties and performance guarantees are great for cars, homes and cable services, but have you ever thought about how ridiculous it sounds to give out a performance guarantee on a living, breathing, feeling, sentient being? I know the idea of a guarantee on a dog can sound sexy because its safe, comforting and reassuring but is it really all its hyped up to be? Check out this weeks Medical Alert Dog Monday Youtube video where I talk about why I would never offer a guarantee and why, in reality, it might be a good thing.
