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

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 .
