Dr. Phil Show, Dec. 14 Warren Retrievers

Were Pet Owners Scammed Out Of Thousands Of Dollars By A Service Dog Company?
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 14

Quote: Melinda, Jovana and Michelle say they thought it was a dream come true when they found a company called SDWR or Service Dogs By Warren Retrievers, that claimed to train Labrador Retrievers to detect glucose levels in children and adults

Dan Warren has been in and out of the news for years. Complaints have been made against him and his dogs for years. People have paid and never received a dog. Some dogs are aggressive and have bitten their handlers of which some were children.

Quote: “They lied. They take people’s money and don’t give us the training they promised. They’ve hurt a lot of families,” said Ninstant, who started using SDWR in 2012.

Quote: Virginia’s Office of the Attorney General is investigating 36 consumer complaints against Service Dogs by Warren Retrievers, according to state spokesman Michael Kelly.

“This is an extremely unusually large number,” said Kelly. "As part of our attempts to investigate these consumer complaints, the OAG issued civil investigative demands to the company asking for certain information that would help us determine whether complaints were founded and whether any laws were being broken. To date, the company has failed to fully and completely respond to the commonwealth’s civil investigative demands and has been found in contempt of court for failing to do so.”

Service dogs for diabetics or just pricey pets?
Article and video
by Joce StermanTuesday, February 10th 2015

WJLA News, Washington, D.C.

Quote: But there are critics. The Virginia Office of the Attorney General has an ongoing investigation with 30 complaints against the company. The 7 On Your Side I-Team asked to review the complaints, but was told they were still active and not public record.

Haymarket resident Michele Hunter is among those who have complained to the AG. She signed an $18,000 contract for one of Warren Retrievers’ diabetic alert dogs. But on our visit to the Hunters’ home, Sugar the dog appeared more interested in playing ball than checking blood sugar. When Hunter’s monitor showed 285, what she considered a significant high, Sugar did not alert and went to sit in the corner with her ball.

Dr. Phil clearly made his opinion of the owner known. I still believe it is up to clients to do better research. A 14 week old puppy cannot do all the tasks claimed in the contract. It just isn't feasible. Lily Grace nailed it. Founder Of National Institute For Diabetic Alert Dogs Weighs In On Service Dogs Controversy | Dr. Phil

I just watched the show. This lady sat there and said that the dog chewed up a remote control while the daughter was at school. So the mom called the school to find out if the daughter's blood sugar is ok. They test her and it is fine. 20 minutes later it drops. The mother says "the dog saved my daughter's life!!"

Recap: dog is at home, diabetic daughter away at school. Dog chews up remote. Mother says aha, the dog must be alerting! School checks daughter's sugar and its fine.

That was the success story. LOL!!!!!

Yeah, I caught that, too. Wondered why no one pointed out that unless the dog is psychic, it's not alerting to the child away from it at school.
