I'm curious how many of you would be seriously interested in a Diabetic Alert Dog Workshop in the New England/ East Coast Area? Full partcipants or option to auditor as well.

I think this would be a wonderful idea, if it were on the west coast :) Good luck, anyway!
Yes, I would be very interested. My sugars are so sparatic. How do we find out what kind of dog is good for this?
This is a great idea, but unfortunately I live in Portland, Oregon. Anyone know of anything in my area?

this does sound GREAT. How about for those of us in Austin, TX??????
There is one in Utah, in Oct. MS in May. They may be full by now. I live in New England and want some education for those of us up here.
Linda, you can contact Early Alert Canines in the SF Bay Area. I believe that they are open to placing dogs in Oregon. www.earlyalertcanines.com

They are working on the website, but at least you can get your information to them for their mailing list. They are a non proft and do not charge for dogs.

I would be very interested in something like this. We live in Maryland but I would be willing to travel.
I'm interested. Live in CT. Depending on when it will be- we are expecting a baby in July, so I might not be able to go- but I"ve been looking into a DAD for when I'm home alone with the baby- for her safety
I would be *very* interested. Have you cross-posted in the New England group?
Please include my name if a New England DAD Workshop is set up. I live in Maine and willing to travel. Thanks much!

i would be very interested
