Thank you to our CTP’s who keep our dogs training & learning during these strange times. Tug is a very useful skill our dogs need to not only learn but enjoy and engage in.

Training Status Update 3/23/2020

Due to COVID-19 formal training at the training center as been suspended. We are asking our  Canine Training Partners to work on specific exercises to keep the dogs learning and growing their skills. D4D trainers create custom training plans that are divided into the skills that need to be developed, as well as the percentage of training time that will be spent daily on each skill.  The dogs are also learning special skills  taught by their Canine Training Partner that they will use in their future life as a service dog.  Canine Training Partners  have weekly video training session with their CTP leader if they are having any trouble.  Dogs4Diabetics is committed to doing all we can to keep our programs moving forward.
