"That's similar to what an Oregon research reported in twenty sixteen dogs in that study detected low blood sugar events thirty six percent of the time but also had false positives Gunder Frederick says some dog owners overestimate their dogs abilities when you find a person who believes very strongly and their dog but in fact maybe the dogs right half the time so it's something like confirmation bias exactly her research also contradicted what some believe or hope it's true that the dogs can be a good safety net for those who worry about blood sugar dropping as they sleep some parents have turned to the dogs to safeguard their children during the night the accuracy just plummeted because dogs have to sleep too obviously a dog cannot work twenty four seven two studies that did find good performance by alert dogs were co written by the dog suppliers but authors of those studies tell NPR the arrangements did not biased their research Edwin peoples who co owns diabetic alert dogs of America that's the company gives and got her dog from says he is trained nearly seven hundred dogs and more than nine out of ten of his clients are satisfied and for dogs that don't work out people says he has a training guarantee they can bring that dog to to my doorstep here in Las Vegas Nevada our response will be I will do my absolute best to try to fix it and if I can't you get a brand new dark but Jessica McCoy a an Ohio mom with type one diabetes had a long running dispute with peoples and now helps run a Facebook page dedicated to complaints about his company she says the replacement dog guarantee can mean little when there's a child involved the child bonds with the dog and then they have to choose whether or not to send the dog back and start over again looking for that life saving alert or if they just let their child go on with life with the stock regardless of the fact that it is working for them more ace dog hachi cost eleven thousand dollars he was supposed to park her if her blood sugar was out of range if I got in his face and asked for the pa I'm sure he would give me a spot but there was never any link to the center of my breath and whether my blood sugar was higher with my blood sugar is low way says she's heard from dozens of other clients summer happy but some have struggled with dogs that are too aggressive or have other problems and while researchers have found little evidence that dogs can reliably sniff out blood sugar my changes god did they have encountered a kind of paradox people Iggy who get Teton them mountains tend to do of better northwest with their Wyoming diabetes steep and here's deep Gondor Frederick Jackson again Hole is they may a magnet just be for more extreme engaged skiers all right with their diabetes they may no it's be not checking a their blood glucose much more often than they used to the dog bodies building is them on sort map of a or garden pleasant Rick Lawler reminder drop a fifteen foot of cliff diabetes in this glade area called the tower three shoots additional very price just and kind there's of a one mellow room day in honestly there sitting at were her just kitchen refer table out with of bounds rocky underneath skiing her feet in balance Gibson acknowledges inside the patrolled he has helped boundaries her feel of the less ski alone resort with is her generally disease thought to be safer but when it comes she to says avalanches I feel that's sorry because all seasons that rocky gears of and packing as an animal the snow was down chosen and stabilizing to do a job it she but was Matt Beauregard in a quick knows to that's do no guarantee that's not fair with to actually the animal triggered small slides neither on is this it exact fair face to me the they recipient made up a rope and ski out of bounds in the back of country a fifteen but even thousand here dollar at specially the resort trained they're dogs wearing avalanche that transceivers isn't and capable safety gear just in of case doing his yeah job ducation is probably Gibson the most says important she plans thing to try to retrain Rick here rocky is wearing herself an air bag and despite his for trainers added guarantee protection so in she case has that no he is intention of sending him back Robert.

"To another story now. It's been a chaotic couple of weeks in the rocky mountains where large avalanches have closed highways ski resorts a single storm near Salt Lake City.
