Certified Intensive Diabetic Alert Service Dog Training Course

Session 1 - The Definition Of Diabetic Alert Dogs

Medical response dogs for diabetes are trained to respond to high blood sugar and low blood sugar levels when the owner becomes symptomatic. A diabetic alert dog, on the other hand, is trained to recognize changes in a person’s blood chemistry and alert their user of a low or a high blood glucose episode. Our service dog training course will help you train an Alert-type diabetic service dog. We will discuss topics like:

-Do you have the time to do the training?

-Laws and regulations regarding diabetic service dogs.

Session 2 - Selecting A Dog For Diabetic Alert Dog Training

Different dog types have different abilities and limitations that you need to consider. Before you start the self-training Diabetic Alert Service Dog course you should know the abilities and limitations of your future service animal. This lesson will help you conduct Puppy Testing which is essential for successful service dog training. We will help you determine if an older dog can go through the training too. The lesson includes general knowledge of dog breeds and their distinguishing traits.

Session 3 - Prepare For Diabetic Alert Dogs Training

Firstly, you must decide which blood sugar level number you want your Diabetic Alert Service Dog to respond to. This is not a set number, because everyone’s blood glucose levels can be different. Please consult your doctor on this decision. The chapter includes advice on how to collect scent samples for your ongoing service dog training. We will help you understand how a proper Diabetic Alert Service Dog should behave, what equipment you will need, and how to grade the treats your dog likes.

Session 4 - Diabetic Alert Dogs Training Basics

This chapter discusses the foundation for your service dog training course. We will focus on teaching proper dog manners, controlling playtime, and feeding. We have tips on how to be an efficient dog trainer that will boost your chances of success. You can use our easy-to-understand knowledgebase to become the best trainer for your Diabetic Alert Service Dog. One of the first tools in your arsenal will be the Service Dog Training Log.

Session 5 - Obedience Training And Practice For Diabetic Alert Dogs

In this session, we are going to talk about learning theory. By the end of this session, you will be familiar with all of the terms used to describe learning and behavior that are currently used in service dog training. We have included the first 5 things your dog should know (sit command, recall/name, waiting, laying down, and leash walking). The chapter discusses how to utilize stimulus control and take advantage of reinforcement and punishment for effective service dog training.

Session 6 - Focus Training For Diabetic Alert Dogs

Your Diabetic Alert Service Dog must be able to concentrate on and take directions from you in various environments and situations. This session will give you the knowledge to conduct successful Eye Contact training to make sure your paw partner can remain focused on you in all kinds of situations. The ability to focus on you is crucial for your dog when there are many distractions around.

Session 7 - Scent And Scenting

The sense of smell is a dog’s primary sense to explore and understand the world. We will help you take advantage of this for your Diabetic Alert Dog training. Diabetics have different smells when they have low or high blood glucose levels. This lesson will help you train your canine to detect and respond to these changes. The lesson talks about how a scent moves through the air, how canines pick up the scent, and how Diabetic Alert Service Dogs compare to other types of working dogs.

Session 8 - Getting Ready To Train For Low Blood Sugar

This chapter discusses in-depth how to collect and store scent samples. We will teach you how scent cones work and the basics of scent training.

Session 9 - Imprinting

This is a very important lesson that you will teach your Diabetic Alert Service Dog. This chapter explains how to pair a particular scent with a desired response from your paw partner. The process is called "Imprinting".

Session 10 - Start The Scent Work Training

At this stage, we will begin to introduce your Diabetic Alert Dog to the scent by using scent tubes. You will learn how to use games to train your dog with a step-by-step guide. You will need to incorporate frequent blood sugar testing as that will be key for knowing when to reward your dog. This chapter will help you train the dog to detect low blood sugar levels.

Session 11 - Alerting Without The Cue

If you have reached this stage of the service dog training course your dog should know what a "low glucose" scent is and can find it anywhere and tell you by alerting. This chapter includes several games/exercises that you can use to teach your dog to alert you when you have a "low glucose" scent without a verbal cue.

Session 12 - Night Time Alert Training

We will teach you how to train your Diabetic Service Dog to alert you at night. Most dogs need some training to accomplish reliability in this critical area. Once again, it is important to understand what we are asking of the dog and how the dog learns. This isn’t easy for your dog and you must be patient. This chapter includes step-by-step guides on how to train your canine for nighttime alerting.

Session 13 - High Blood Sugar Scent Training

Once your dog is accomplished at finding and catching real-time lows, you can move on to "high blood glucose" scents. This will be significantly easier since your dog has already learned the rules of the game in the previous sessions. You will need to collect high blood sugar scent samples when you know you have high blood sugar levels. Proper sample collection, use, and storage are vital for your training.

Public Access Training And Final

Basic skills and self-control training are crucial before taking a Diabetic Alert Service Dog to public locations. We encourage you to start training your service dog in outdoor pet-friendly locations. There are three main areas of public access for service dogs: outdoor pet-friendly locations, indoor pet-friendly locations, and non-pet-friendly locations. This chapter includes a self-administered Public Access Test to help you determine if your team is prepared to visit non-pet-friendly public locations.

Assessment Method

At the end of each training session, our tutor team will conduct an online evaluation of your training progress. You will be asked to complete a quiz and submit photos and videos of your dog performing specific tasks and exhibiting proper public behaviors. This method of continual assessment ensures that your personal trainer can consistently monitor your training progress, provide you with assistance throughout the course, and prepare you for final certification and public testing.

○ Violates health requirements - e.g., prohibited from entering a U.S. territory or foreign country.
