About Diabetic Alert Dog Training
Diabetic Alert Dog training was founded by Mark Reufenacht. Reufenacht was a forensic scientist who also had type 1 diabetes. He had the idea that if dogs could detect bombs and drugs, they might be able to detect blood sugar levels. Based off of his research, studies, and training, the Diabetic Alert Dog training program was born.
Our Diabetic Alert Dog program in Northern Virginia is run by Nick White, owner of Off Leash K9 Training. Nick is a former US Marine and former US Secret Service, he currently has over 70+ locations throughout the United States; however, his HQ is right here in Northern Virginia.
