Is your Sugar Dog on Facebook? Mozart Walker is, check him out and ask to be Friends. He’s our oldest Sugar Dog at 18 years in Oct.
Our newest team as of October 2016 is Richard and Kahlua. Richard is a Type 1 diabetic (T1D) and has problems keeping his blood glucose (BG) under control. Kahlua is just a puppy and Richard is starting him out right with obedience training. We expect great things out of this team. Kahlua is a standard Poodle puppy, maybe 5 months old in this photo. Beautiful Sugar Dog!
One of our newest team are Arnold and his Sugar Dogs: June Carter and Johnny Cash. Arnold has been a Type 1 diabetic (T1D) since he was 17 years old and he’s a world traveler. The dogs are perfect examples of the Chinese Crested breed. Go Dogs Go!
Arnold reports that his dog Johnny Cash alerted just days after beginning our program and yes, saved his life as he was driving. Go Johnny!
Our newest team are Izy and Samson. Izy has been a T1D since she was 11. She’s an accomplished scientist, a T1D Advocate, an Autism Educator, a beautiful young lady with a beautiful Sugar Dog. Congratulations!
Samson was a gift to Sugar Dogs International from one of our most preferred breeders, Darla Spencer in Brooksville, FL. He trained for approximately two years with another T1D who we all continue to love and keep in our prayers with regard to her health challenges. Please support Sugar Dogs International with your love, your Poodles, and your donations. Please help us help others.
Another great team are Antoine and Snowie in France! Bonjour and welcome!

Ladies and Gentlemen: Introducing another spontaneously alerting Sugar Dog. This is the best picture of Bear and his sister Savannah, a powder puff Chinese Crested who was rescued from a puppy mill in North Carolina, where she lived in a basement for 5 years.

Our newest team includes a Border Collie named DAKOTA! We expect great things!
Due to unusual circumstances, Sy went home to be with Gavin and his new family at about 4-5 weeks old. He’s growing up to be a very special Sugar Dog. Gavin is one of our youngest Type 1 diabetics.

This is a perfect photo of a Sugar Dog team. Ed’s 2 lbs. 15 oz. “Mocha” is our tinest Sugar Dog. It is consistent practice of the training method that helps the diabetic and the Poodle work together as a team to achieve better A1c results. Mocha goes everywhere with Ed!
