hi shirley i’m actually starting to look into this… can you help send me in the right direction??
My Scottish Terrier (see pix) is also trained to alert on hypo (<65 BS) and hyper (>300 BS) events. Since Scottish Terriers are “ground hunters” seeking varmits underground, they have a great sense of smell and it works for out-of-normal BS ranges. Since I can no longer sense a hypo or hyper event and am extremely brittle, Charlie is my insurance policy fo events between tests. He is trained to first sit in front of me. If I do not respond he will start hitting my leg with his nose. If he can get to exposed skin on my legs, hands or arms I will also get a nuzzle from a very cold wet nose. He gets his message accross and is about 80% accurate in alreting to BS events. Thisis the second dog I have had with this training, the first was ans Old English Sheepdog.
More on the smaller alert dog breeds, please. And any part-time alert dog owners out there.
we are in Australia doing a great job and growing rapidly. www.pfd.org.au
Our Rottweiler alerts when my husband is approaching a bad low, without training. Looking into doing some more actual training if anyone has any US links to info or training articles? I read on another thread about DADs going for $20K! Wow, way out of our price range!!
