NEW and EXCITING CLASSSES AND SEMINARS FOR 2024!

Medical Alert Training Seminars for service dogs, service dogs in training, and trainers.

Train your dog to alert to symptoms of diabetes, migraines, epilepsy, or food allergies before they become a medical emergency.

Saturday, April 27, May 25, June 22, July 27, August 24, September, 28, October 26, November 23.

From 2:15 pm to 5:15 pm

Please call 587 317 – 5404 to register. Classes dates subject to change.

Instructor: Carla Simon, BSc, MD, MBA, owner of Hunter’s Heart Scent Detection K9s.

All levels and ages are welcome! We will tailor the training to your experience level. Your dog does not need to be a service dog yet.

Certified teams are welcome. Brand new teams can try the first steps of introducing scent. No previous
experience is required, and puppies usually have fun.

Sometimes it can feel overwhelming to start training medical alerts. Carla will show you exactly what to do, using rewards-based scent detection protocols that have already worked for thousands of students.

About:

https://scentdetection.huntersheart.com/about_hunters_heart_scent_detection_classes_calgary

To get started we will provide a palm-sized piece of rubber placemat to begin training the scent detection behaviour.

Once proficient, you will pair that object with your saliva sample. Ask for details on how to collect the samples
properly.

Experienced teams test your skills with double-blind tests on the daisy wheel. Get answers to your questions in a supportive environment. Learn how to handle when you feel uncertain. Carla will suggest the next steps for training your medical alert dog.

Dogs must always be on leash and under control, as expected for service dogs. No dog-dog interaction is ever allowed. Do not allow your dog to sniff or greet other dogs. Only one dog will work at a time.

Your dog can wait for their turn by lying quietly at your feet. Please bring a crate or bed. (Sorry, barking dogs cannot wait in the seminar room, since they make it difficult for other teams to learn. If your dog is barking and disturbing the other students, you can bring a helper to wait with your dog in
your vehicle between turns. Talk to us if you have any concerns. Other options include crating in an adjacent room.)

Investment: $300.00 + GST working spot. Please reserve early, maximum six working teams or $150.00 + GST auditor (no dog).

Call 587 317 – 5404 to register.

Sorry, we cannot offer refunds, but you can find another dog to take your spot.

Minimum enrollment – two working students.

If we must cancel for lack of interest, you will receive a 100% refund.
