Here are a couple of videos I took when at the HQ this week (July 14th 2015.) 

Go here to see the mixture of adorable pooches and hear what some of them do.

go here to see Rob explain how they do the training in the research lab 

and prepare yourself for some super fast detecting in this video of one of the dogs reaching an astonishing parts per million detecting rate - click here (video)

plus - watch and listen to Simba giving his owner Carolyn an alert when he detects her blood sugar is not right - he will keep doing this till she checks her bloods. When I was there she had an alert - I'd never heard a noise like this from a labrador, and I've had them for 16 years. He is supposed to alert her if her blood sugar goes below 5 or over 15. When she checked it it was 14.9. Amazing.

Medical Detection Dogs support people with serious health conditions such as diabetes and Addisons by alerting them prior to a medical emergency. Our first study showed that dogs can detect bladder cancer volatiles and are carrying out a study into whether dogs can detect prostate cancer from urine samples and breast cancer from breath samples (samples taken from hospital patients.)

That's why I decided to support this charity. Who knows, if we raise £2000 we may even be able to name one of the detector dogs! Come back here for regular updates in the run up to the event.





See Jade the labrador/Chris Gardner's story here. More soon.

More to come...
