my blood sugar is fine , not my blood pressure

not after this !

just by chance had TV on as background while getting orders ready. Marilyn Denis , good , friendly show, great host -- this day was "health" topics and a diabetes detection dog would be discussed. Okay , you have my attention.

sorry I don't know how to reduce this clip to just the pertinent section but you can find the discussion approximately 1/3 in .

One thing I can not stand is people in need , (or any person) being taken advantage of .

Look at the clip The Marilyn Denis Show | Video

My internet connection is a slow loader, so I've only gotten to the 1:30 mark. I'm already stunned by the fact that the dog (puppy?) is terrified by the girl running towards him, and he's on a prong collar. How much worse does it get?!?

So the dog wakes up from his nap at home. He can stick his nose in the air and from a kilometer away, alert to the girls' condition while she is in school. Seriously?

Well, that new insulin pump seems awesome and completely trustworthy. Nothing against the dog, but I'd be going with the pump. Actually the girl uses that pump. Maybe the dog "hears" the pump alert from a kilometer away and then he alerts to the pump. LOL!

what upsets me are the claims . This dog is said to be alerting. I don't know if I downloaded the right way or the right segments. There is a part where the male Dr says oh yes dogs are amazing , he can sense the girls blood sugar drop from 5 km's away -- the parents say the dog started barking in the car a mile away from her school alerting , the dog barked in the grocery and the dog barked alerting on the girls blood sugar levels.

here are the family's words Training with Tim | Service Dogs By Warren Retrievers

They like the dog . But how can a dog read a drop in blood sugar 20 minutes before it happens . The parents are vigilant . The dog is just plain anxious and they are reading positive things into his nerves.

what was the dog doing in the grocery with the parents --- that is not part of the service dog description ---
people involved are putting a whole lot of energy making the dog successful , doing the work for him ---- the dog has received NO TRAINING , nothing that would create a positive association and reward to indicating a drop -- NO TRAINING . The young girl likes to take the dog to play with other dogs .

I am on side with the parents and the child . I feel for them , so my criticism is not aimed at them , but at the provider of the dog .

So they mentioned these labs coming from Warren Retrievers . Looking for more information , wondering what their breeding program was (this was not a well bred Lab ) I ran across Guardian Angel owner far from angelic | The Examiner

Family: Service dog for diabetic child fails at job | khou.com Houston

and they are all wearing pinch collars - even the puppy

situation. “My wife and I would’ve never gone with this company if we’d known we were going to have to train the dog ourselves.”
According to McLeod, even though the family has had possession of the dog for 8 months, Gunner still cannot accurately alert and doesn’t even attempt to alert at night.

EUREKA ! I found it .

He has 20 breeding females and is openly looking for more --(right on his web site) .

He says the pups are in the home in a loving home . Sure.
20 litters worth?

He says the puppies are bottle fed from day one . WHY?
unnecessary and unhealthy for the pups !! I think he is appealing to human emotions , humanizing the pups.

The pups at 10 - 12 weeks of age are $20,000 .

my goodness .

lots of complaints ---

I could not watch the whole vid, but just the pin points -- what a jerk. There is a special place in the Fiery Pit forged for him.
