Rooney’s alerting accuracy continues to be astounding!
Rooney’s person, Curtis, is still keeping track of every one of Rooney’s alerts, false alerts, and missed alerts in a google sheet that I can check. This is a part of the transition training process I require to ensure the dogs are adapting to their new home and alerting as accurately as possible and on the right track. I check this google sheet obsessively - significantly more than I check Instagram or my emails to be honest… But this dog STILL has yet to give an incorrect alert or miss an alert - which is absolutely crazy given
she’s been there for over 1 month.
This morning I looked and I saw that Rooney once again had a phenomenal night alert! At 5:50am she woke Curtis up by nudging his hand and arm. He checked and was 41!
Night alerts are the ultimate goal of a Diabetic Alert Dog, but never guaranteed as dogs have to sleep too! Many dogs just aren’t capable of them. But this was Rooney’s 7th night alert - and she’s never missed one. I have no words or understanding for this level of performance, but am so grateful that she found her family and her job.
