At Medical Mutts, we're dedicated to leading in dog training and behavior research. We partner with respected institutions worldwide, specializing in canine medical detection. Through our research initiatives, we strive to advance medical and psychiatric knowledge.
In recent years, scientific research has unveiled the incredible abilities of dogs in assisting with various medical conditions, from diabetes alerts to cancer detection and more. At Medical Mutts, we're dedicated to being at the forefront of dog training and behavior research. We collaborate with esteemed institutions worldwide, specializing in canine medical detection. Our goal is to expand knowledge in the medical and psychiatric domains through research projects.
Our expertise extends to training dogs for specific scent discrimination tasks, ensuring precision and reliability in crucial medical tasks. Jennifer Cattet, Ph.D., our founder, played a key role in the groundbreaking study that identified the scent of hypoglycemia in type 1 diabetic patients. We've also been involved in research regarding scent detection in seizures and contributed to international studies on COVID-19.
Additionally, we actively engage in developing innovative technologies to enhance communication between dogs and humans, enriching their lives.
