Sawyer the Service Corgi

About a year ago, I was paired with Sawyer. He is a Cardigan Welsh Corgi bred right here in Chichester NH. He comes from Finlayson’s Pet Care. His trainer, Mary Finlayson of Granite State Service Dogs, and I have been training him to become my diabetic alert dog. So far we have had a good amount of success with both his public access training and scent training. Sawyer is now able to pick up my low blood sugar in many different situations. He has achieved this multiple times in everything from over night lows or in the grocery store. I am raising money for the remainder of his training. 

We are currently working to be able to get Sawyer to come to work with me where I can utilize him full time. We are over half way paid off for his training. This is for the other half of his training. 

So far we have trained in malls, restaurants, hospitals, urgent care, and office buildings. Sawyer has done very well with both the public access and scent training required for the diabetic function of his job. 

Mary Finlayson has been in business in Chichester NH for many years. She has helped dozens like me me who has had to train Service DogsNot only for diabetes. She is trained dogs for seizure disorders, PTSD and autism.
