I am the proud owner of a fully-certified service dog named Rae. She is from the Concord, California based organization Dogs4Diabetics and I cannot imagine life without her. She is disturbingly accurate and perfectly behaved…I adore her. My HA1C has improved significantly since I got her because I can now attempt tight control without worrying about severe lows while sleeping, driving, or taking midterms. She’s amazing. However, it took many years to get her and I to the point where we had a functional, working interaction. She did not start out perfect, and we were not allowed to graduate from the program until our accuracy ratings were near 100%. But with a lot of time and energy, we did it, and now my life will never be the same - but in a good way.
I’d love to talk to any of you about this. I know it’s a hot topic and there are a lot of questions out there.
