Mom found this article and told me I should share it with my friends, and then my friends could share it with their mom’s and dad’s. I know some two-legged’s with food allergies and I agree with Mom– more people should hear about this!
And now I quote the article:
Allergy Dogs Poodles, Labradors, and German Shepherds are being trained to save the lives of those with serious food allergies. Dubbed peanut dogs, the pooches can sniff and detect a minute amount of peanuts or other allergen. Then they do a little dance to signal their owners to steer clear. Some parents say the dogs can even sniff the hand of a playmate to determine whether hand-washing is in order. Google peanut detection dog to find a kennel that sells them. Available: now.
Pretty cool, huh? I think so too!
