Matching a Diabetic Alert Dog to the home perfectly suited to them is, in our opinion, the most critical part of the training process. Each dog is unique and each family is unique, and they have to become a team in order to work together successfully. As a small organization, typically MD Dogs receives 100 applications for every 1 available dog - below is our process to help match each dog to the perfect applicant. Because of the low volume of dogs we produce, we encourage applicants to continue searching for other organizations even after they apply in case they find a better fit or another dog is available sooner.
Our DAD Matching Process
After your online course has been completed and your application has been submitted, within a few weeks we will email with the status of your application and your next steps.
If you are added to MD Dogs Waitlist, anytime a dog is available you will automatically be considered before other applicants. We will reach out to find out if you are still interested if the dog in particular might be a match for you. At any point you may remove yourself from the waitlist by sending us an email.
The dogs we provide are very unique and not your typical "service dog" as we work with small, high drive dogs - we aren't the organization for everyone! But we are happy to help you find the right organization or potential next steps.
