Making A Life-Changing Decision: An SDWR Review

isha 2 comments

Deciding to invest in a Diabetic Alert Dog is a big decision for those living with diabetes and their loved ones. The costs, care, and process are all factors to consider when thinking about adding a service dog to your household. For those that are on the fence, we want you to know how much value our service dogs for Diabetics can add to the lives of those living with and caring for diabetes. Read on to find an SDWR review about a Diabetic who once lived with diabetes interfering with her life. With her service dog by her side, she found support to live a more structured life.

I have owned Charlie, my service dog from Service Dog’s by Warren Retrievers, for a year, and a half. Before receiving Charlie, I was literally living every single day in fear for my life, due to complications of my Type 1 diabetes. I have been unable to feel the symptoms of my low blood sugars for over 3 years now, and had serious daily lows, prior to Charlie. This caused a lot of stress, and fear for myself, and my family. Many 911 calls were made to keep me alive. I knew I needed to make a major decision to change what was happening to me, or I would not live a much longer life. I did a lot of research before choosing an organization, as my life depended on it. SDWR, was the only organization I knew would be able to help me. They not only delivered my dog to me, but they would train for 2 years after I received him, by coming to me. They were the only organization that called back immediately after each call I made to them. They were the only organization that didn’t have a two plus year waiting list. So, I made the decision to go with them, and it was the best decision I ever made.

Since I have received Charlie, he started alerting me from day one. I have not had one single episode of coming close to dialing 911. He has aggressively alerted me to my sugars, well in advance, so I don’t have to worry about an emergency. He has given me my life back! He has given my family peace of mind, knowing I am in safe paws. Owner Dan Warren has remained the same, as the very first day I called to research his organization. He has always contacted me immediately, when I have contacted him. Cheri, and all of the trainers have been exceptional, and have helped me make Charlie the amazing service dog, and companion that he is today. I wouldn’t trade my decision for anything! All of this has happened because SDWR is a reliable, and trustworthy organization, who stands by what they have promised to me, and all other owners of their dogs!Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Diabetes as an invisible illness is difficult to manage, both mentally and physically. As a diabetes caretaker, waking up throughout the night to check on your loved one leaves you feeling tired. Mentally, the stress, fear and constant care can leave you in low spirits. To counter the effects that diabetes care presents,  it is important to take time for yourself and learn to keep a balance between diabetes and enjoying life. Read the following tips on how you can find the right balance between living life while caring for diabetes.

Have Fun with Your Diabetic Loved One

There’s no reason you and your Diabetic loved one can’t have fun together. There are so many healthy options to engage in. Spending time not only alleviates the stress of diabetes care, it gives you and your loved one a chance to bond and enjoy life. Exercising together, walking and traveling are all great ways to have fun. Don’t let diabetes care consume your life, make time for activities for you and your Diabetic loved one.

Have Your Support System

It’s not the easiest accomplishment to handle diabetes care alone. It’s true that most of the general public does not understand the real nuances and complications of diabetes care. However, there’s an abundance of support available through diabetes non-profits, online communities and most likely a local community that supports diabetes. Keep in mind that there are thousands of diabetes care takers experiencing what you experience on a daily basis. Connect with them, share your story, and build your support system for diabetes care. The SDWR Diabetic Alert Dog forum is a great place to start meeting others that either live with or care for diabetes.

Be Sure to Take Care of Yourself Too

It’s easy to only focus on your loved one to ensure they stay safe and protected from what diabetes can do. Yes, diabetes regulation is your top priority. But remember, if you fail to care for yourself, being the best possible caretaker will prove to be more challenging. To prevent burn out, take the time to engage in what you enjoy, or recharge your batteries through travel, hobbies and more. As mentioned, this is very do-able when you involve your Diabetic loved one!

Service Dogs for Diabetics Provide Relief

“This dog has changed Ashton’s life (and ours too). Ashton’s blood sugar is under control for the first time ever. (He was always in the 200s before – when he bothered to check at all – and 300, 400, and even 500s were not unusual). His doctor was amazed to see his A1C in the “excellent” range, and signed off on his driver’s license. He now has a license for the first time – he is almost 20 years old.” Read more here.
