Did you know Diabetes Alert Dogs are trained to alert owners with diabetes in advance of low (hypoglycemia) or high (hyperglycemia) blood sugar events before they become dangerous? That way their handlers can take steps to return their blood sugar to normal such as using glucose sweets or taking insulin.

Have you ever wondered what it takes to teach your dog to sense your oncoming low blood sugars and actually alert you to them?

Renowned dog expert Debby Kay provides an overview of the basics of dog training and dog care and details how your dog can sense your blood sugars and respond in different ways depending on whether your blood sugar is high or low. Respected diabetes educator Kathy Gold shares information on treating hypoglycemia and/or high hyperglycemia for people living with diabetes.

Mosaic Central Farm Market opened in the heart of the vibrant Mosaic District in Fairfax, Virginia. The market features over 60 vendors during the April-December season.
