Rehabilitation & Placement
One Great Dog At A Time.

Tidewater K-9 Academy and it's 501(c)(3) The CARES Organization are rescuing Doodles and training them as Diabetic Alert Service Dogs. These dogs alert Type 1 diabetics when their blood glucose levels are too low or too high. The dogs are especially useful to those diabetics with hypoglycemic unawareness.

Our first doodle is helping a family in New Jersey where the mother and an eleven year old son are both Type 1. Our second doodle is heading to Washington state in August to help a gentleman who is hypoglycemic unaware. Several of the doodles from a current litter will be trained as Diabetic Alert Dogs.  Plans are in the works for a litter of F1B Goldendoodles as well.

Meet the dogs ready for placement and learn about their special abilities
