"Nell - I have heard from a number of sources that poodles make fine alert dogs. I even know one trainer who prefers them. The trainer in VA that you mentioned, Scott Smith, is worth talking to. He's friendly and informative and will put no…"

Hi GuitarManDave, and welcome.

Please check out the New England group here, you may be able to connect with folks that live close to you.

I've been using a Dexcom for about 2 years now, so if you have any questions feel free to ask me.

If you'd like to meetup with some others from Massachusetts a group of us are getting together at the ADA expo this Saturday. Maybe we'll see you there.
