Cancer Detection Dog Certification

Tucson, AZ Campaign 28263

Schools & Education - Campaign

Hi, I have been training dogs for a long time and in the last 10 years I've been training medical alert dogs for epilepsy, diabetes, lupus, Parkinson’s, and many other issues. I also train dogs to assist with PTSD, TBI, MST, mobility/stability, assistance including helping with the laundry, and other forms of assistance dogs.

I have a chance to get certified as a trainer of Cancer Detection Dogs - a field that may have started 16 years ago when the first dog indicated to cancer to now with a real technology that trains dogs to detect cancel. The certification class is in November 2016 and costs $4500 just for the class itself. The class is being delivered in California and I live in Arizona so would also need funds for living during the time of the class.

I have friends and relatives that have cancer, have died from cancer and I would really love to be able to advance the field with nearly 100% early detection of cancer using those dogs I dearly love. I would love to have many join me in this endeavor in advancing this incredible field of scent work for dogs. Also as part of this certification class I will be learning how to train for early detection of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Both diseases are manageable with medication if caught early enough which is hit or miss with the current methods of detection.

Thank you in advance !
