  • Frequently Asked Questions
    people approach us with a pet dog that is showing signs of alerting to their particular condition If the circumstances are right we will provide support to the client to train their dog and help the dog to become a qualified assistance dog How are dogs trained Dogs are trained using scent and breath samples collected from the client when they are experiencing an episode The dogs are trained to identify the unique odours At what age are dogs trained Dogs are usually ready for advanced training and placement with their new owner at around 18 months old but this depends on the dog and breed as they have to be mature enough to begin the process How do the dogs alert their owners Dog alerts need to be clear and persistent as our clients often have no awareness of an imminent episode The dogs are with their owners 24 7 and alert both during the day and night Dogs are trained to alert by either jumping up and or licking strongly The type of alert will vary depending on the needs of the client How do you ensure the Medical Alert Assistance Dogs are able to get enough sleep when as part of their role they often wake at night to alert their owner Most dogs will sleep between 12 18 hours a day Active assistance dogs will sleep less than sedentary pets as it is thought that dogs have a tendency to sleep when nothing stimulating is happening Dogs also have a much easier time of scheduling their sleep as they are able to simply shift their sleeping time to whatever time is available Dogs have sleep cycles in which they experience periods of quiet restful sleep interspaced with periods of REM rapid eye movement sleep Dogs cycle through the various stages very quickly 15 minutes compared to humans 90 minutes This means that they are well suited to interrupted sleep patterns How much does it cost to train a dog The total cost of training a Medical Alert Assistance Dog is 11 200 The total cost of training a Cancer Detection Dog is 7200 with an ongoing monthly cost of 600 How accurate are Medical Alert Assistance Dogs We regularly monitor the performance of all our Medical Alert Assistance Dogs collating data of the alerting behaviour exhibited by the dog and calculating true alerts and false positives The partnership does not qualify until alerting accuracy reaches 90 or above with a false positive rate of 10 or less At Medical Detection Dogs we ensure all our dogs are closely monitored for alerting performance behaviour and their effect on the individual s health and wellbeing Our stringent criteria means every client regularly tests their blood and the dog becomes an additional aid alongside continuous careful management of their condition Which associations do Medical Detection Dogs belong to Medical Detection Dogs is a member of Assistance Dogs AD International AD Europe and AD UK and all our dogs are
