We will be teaching our medical alert dog class in Seattle April 5th-8th 2018 in Seattle. Registration must be completed by March 1st!

What Tasks Can A POTS / Dysautonomia Alert Dog Do For Me?

Howard from Wichita Kansas has our question of the week.  Howard has POTS, a form of Dysautonomia, and has heard that dogs can alert to POTS episodes.   Howard was wondering if they can be trained to alert to his Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome and what additional tasks can a trained POTS alert dog  perform.  Listen to this weeks Medical Alert Dog Monday to find out what tasks a Dysautonomia alert dog can be trained to do and also hear a testimonial from one of our POTS students who had one of our Imprinted Puppies from our February 2017 Labradoodle litter.

So what do you think of our answer?   Do you think because we have trained 5 POTS alert dogs that we are not experts in medical alert dog training?  What other tasks do you think you would be useful for your POTS / Dysautonomia alert dog?  Leave a comment below and give us your opinion.
