Members of a local family who own Duty Dogs will talk about the rights of service dogs and business owners according to the American Disabilities Act. The program starts at 6 p.m. on Monday, April 11.
Diabetic alert dogs can smell the chemical change of falling blood sugar due to diabetes. Duty Dogs are trained to alert their person when this change occurs so the diabetic can correct their low blood sugar before it becomes a problem.
