Melody Daniels:

I'm a dog trainer with 30+ years of experience, and a Type 1 Diabetic on an insulin pump.

After owner-training and handling my retrievers to such titles as Grand Champion, Companion Dog Excellent, Utility Dog, Tracking Dog, Rally Excellent, Agility Excellent, Senior Hunter, Working Certificate Excellent, Canine Good Citizen, Therapy Dogs International, and Hall of Fame -- I trained Boone to detect and alert me to my low and rapidly dropping blood sugar levels. I am committed to helping others have a trained Diabetic Alert Dog.
