Medical Alert Workgroup - Scent Based Alerts
Yooper Paws of Love and Hacyon Canines are partnering to bring you the Medical Alert Workgroup to teach you how to train your Service Dog to do Medical Alerts for a wide variety of medical disabilities that present with scent based indicators of a need for action.
We will be focusing on training a specific alert behavior the dog can do to let their human know a medical issue is about to happen based on the dog smelling a biological change in their handler.
This is geared toward the following alerts:
- Migraine Alerts
- Diabetic Alerts
- Cardiac Alerts
This workgroup will meet for 6 Zoom based sessions beginning Wednesday, September 7th and taking place every other Wednesday night for the next 12 weeks. It's not mandatory to participate in the Zoom meeting as each meeting will be recorded and a replay made available. But it's definitely more beneficial for you to participate live and ask your questions during the Zoom meeting.
We will also be using our +R SD Task group on Facebook as a platform for group communication between Zoom meetings and can start a Facebook Messenger Chat for those in the workgroup that want meeting reminders and help with the assigned homework. Yes! There will be homework! After each Zoom you will have 1 or 2 actions to do with your dog in the training process. These should take you less then 5 minutes a day, but are best if you can do them daily and why we meet every other week so you have time to build up your SD team between the Zoom Meetings.
For this to be successful, we must keep the Workgroup small and therefore we ask that you only participate if you have already have a Service Dog or Service Dog in Training that is at least 1 yr old or older and that you have been training together as a team for at least 6 months.
The cost of this class is $125, which is an awesome deal considering all the information and support we offer to all the workgroup participants!
