Double R Aussiedoodles has always enjoyed the feeling that comes from donating a puppy, sending funds to ministries, or giving to someone in need, we are truly blessed and wish to be a blessing. Just so you know, we do not train DAD dogs, we raise them and donate them to Pawsabilities Unleashed...they do the training. We also sell puppies we believe could make a good prospect for a DAD dog. We make no guarntees as to the outcome, as it's all in the training...it requires an experienced trainer to get the results you want and need!
Double R Aussiedoodles donates puppies, on a regular basis, to Pawsabilities Unleashed, in Frankfort, KY. The elite puppies are trained for Service Dog work...one such service is diabetic alert dogs...DAD.
Liz Norris is the owner, and head trainer, of Pawsabilities Unleashed. Liz has over 20 years experience of training dogs, when she was serving our country, in the military. She retired, opened her training center in Frankfort, Ky. where she and her staff, train service/therapy dogs of all types. Diabetic Alert Dogs or DAD dogs are her specialty. Liz has some very unique techniques of training DAD dogs! One example is when the dog alerts she presents both hands...one is a fist, the other is an open plam facing the dog. If the clients sugar is dropping the dog will nudge her closed fist...if it's rising, the dog will give a "high 5" on the open palm....how cool is that!
It's amazing what these dogs are capable of...DAD dogs work on scent...it takes hundreds of hours, thousands of repetations, to fully train a DAD dog. They will make a hugh difference in the life of a person who is a diabetic...child, adult, or the elderly can benefit from owning a DAD dog!
If you want to contact Liz, at her training center, go to: www.pawsabilitiesunleashed.org\ the first step is filling out a questionaire...everyone must start here. Obtaining a DAD dog, or any Service Dog, is a process...it takes time and commitment. It should not be entered into lightly...it will be SOOOOO worth your while!
A young man from Reno Nevada, and his mom, have come up with a great idea to do a "fund raiser" to get Gage a DAD service dog. Gage wrote a book, "Gage's New Friend", mom did the illustrations. The book is about a boys desire to get a diabetic alert dog. The book is currently available for purchase. If you would like to help Gage get his DAD dog. If you have a child with diabeties, this might be a great way to start a conversation about their illness...and the personal responsibility diabeties demands.
