Diabetes Alert clients have something called “hypo unawareness”. This means they often don’t feel the warning symptoms of their blood sugars dropping. Their Dog Guide can alert them to the lows that they often otherwise wouldn’t feel.
“Before having a service dog, I would often go so low that I would have seizures and sometimes get hurt, which was very scary. Having Trebek by my side has given me my confidence back as well as my independence.
Trebek allows me to focus more on being a mom. Because Trebek is focused on me, I am able to be more focused on the present moment with my children. “
