Our Medical Dogs in Research

Scent Training Medical Dogs

In the past decade, science has gained more insight into dogs' ability to assist us with our medical conditions, from diabetes alert dogs to cancer detection, C-diff detection, and even heart conditions. 


At Medical Mutts, we strive to stay up to date on the latest advances in dog training and behavior and collaborate in research projects with different institutions involved in the field of canine medical detection, in the US and abroad.  We have the capacity to provide and train dogs for specific discrimination tasks and are always interested in contributing to the advancement of knowledge in the medical and/or psychiatric field.


We're also involved in the development of technologies to enhance the communication between people and dogs and to improve the life of dogs.
