That's awesome you want to start a non-profit, too. Although I'm fairly new to this endeavor, I've had a lot of success with the dog I've trained, who is now alerting both high and low BS's for me. I shadowed the Dogs for Diabetics group in CA for a couple of days before I went to Triple Crown to learn about scent detection and service dog work. But, I still have a lot to learn. I have a few fellow trainers who are interested in training dogs for diabetics and they have passed on knowledge to me from things they've learned from people doing it in their area. We were thinking about starting an online group to share knowledge on the subject because it seems like so many of the non-profits out there are very secretive about their methods. Which, to us, seems like the opposite of their cause, which is to get as many quality dogs to as many diabetics as need them. Sorry, I just went on a tangent!
