ODMMA – One Dog, Multiple Medical Alerts – Is It Possible?

Solstice from Bellingham Washington is a type one diabetic. She is getting a German Shepherd puppy from a breeder in a few weeks. Solstice not only wants to train her pup for diabetes but wants to train her dog to alert to her migraines. However, Solstice isnt sure its even possible for one dog to perform alerts for more than one medical condition. What do you think? Is it possible for one dog to perform medical alerts for more that one disability?

    Mary, I love your videos…look forward to them and always learn something. We communicated a year or so ago–I was interested in training my dog to alert to AFib. But as it’s now controlled by meds, there didn’t seem to be any way to do that (to teach the dog what to alert to…if no seizures or onsets). Still hope at some point to take your class. Not a diabetic yet, but I’m certain that my pup could help warn me of something :-))

    Keep up the great work!

    Can medical alert dogs alert for anxiety?

    I love this! I get super debilitating migraines and am working on basics with my puppy right now with the hopes of getting him to migraine alert. I love your videos!

    Mary – I enjoy your weekly videos, have been thinking of training my dog to alert. She is a 2 yr old lab mix, and I think she has potential. Maybe one of these days I will be able to get to Seattle. If you start doing any online classes for those of us who are not in the area, then I am in!
    Thanks again-

    Tucson AZ. Mary, I wish to train my Miniature Pinscher as an Asthma Alert dog. She is very intelligent, loyal and responsive. I have started sensitivity training here at home. I responded to your fabulous video above because it included Asthma in the caption, however did not touch on Asthma. We will be interested in the online training. I was a police dog trainer earlier in my life…have some basics. Sophia is a quick study, a rescue at 7 months and now 2 years old. Thanks for your great entertaining videos.
