Mission Statement

The mission of Early Alert Canines (EAC) is to improve the health, safety, and well being of insulin-dependent diabetics through partnerships with low blood-sugar alert dogs. We train dogs to alert insulin-dependent diabetics to impending and possibly dangerous low blood sugar episodes. ( www.earlyalertcanines.org ) We provide the dogs free of charge to diabetiics in California and Oregon.

Description

An Early Alert Canine is a medical alert service dog that has been intensively trained to smell changes in blood sugar levels and alert its partner at the onset of a drop in order to avoid a potentially dangerous hypoglycemic episode or low blood sugar event.

EAC provides service dogs with public access rights to adults and children 12 years of age or older. For younger children, and those wishing for only in-house alerting, we train skilled companions. These dogs are invaluable for nighttime and playtime monitoring for families with young diabetic children.
