At least three times a week I get emails from potential students looking to train their own medical alert dogs. Most of them either ask how old the dog has to be to start medical alert dog training or assume that their dog is too young to start medical alert dog training. In the video, Lavoyce from Kansas wants to know how old the dog has to be to start his training. In this YouTube Medical Alert Dog Monday video you will learn how neuroplasticity, cognitive pathways and critical socialization windows play a significant role in how soon you should start your dogs medical alert dog training. Hint: its probably alot earlier than you think!
