The mission of M.D. Dogs is to be a resource for service dog training, standards, and research. We were founded for 3 purposes:
1. To teach disabled individuals how to train their own medical detection dogs for a low cost.
2. To bring transparency to the field of Diabetic Alert Dogs.
3. To educate those who are wanting to purchase a trained Diabetic Alert Dog so they are able to ask relevant questions and determine the most reputable organization to purchase a dog from.
OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS
As a Service Dog trainer and researcher, Libby realized the industry would benefit from comprehensive and proven instructions for training your own Diabetic Alert Dog. This idea prompted her to found M.D. Dogs Inc.
As a NICU nurse at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, Grace provides a medical perspective to our board. In addition, she experiences the effects of this disease daily as her husband has type 1 diabetes. Grace has a passion for finding a cure, and until then finding other ways to ease this burden.
Prior to becoming a dog breeder, Kathy studied and practiced as a nurse. As a breeder, Kathy supports the Diabetic Alert Dog industry by frequently donating puppies to be future Service Dogs to be trained as Diabetic Alert Dogs, PTS Assistance Dogs, and Psychiatric Service Dogs.
Donations are greatly appreciated to support our mission to continue providing affordable resources, enabling those with diabetes to train their own Diabetic Alert Dogs. We are solely funded through grants and donations from individuals like you and any donation truly makes a difference, thank you!
