Hypo Hounds is a registered charity in England and Wales 1165858 - based in Tenterden. Serving the Kent community. Hypo hounds trains pet dogs to become life saving Diabetic Alert Dogs for children and adults with brittle Type 1 Diabetes.
Using specialist scent training the dogs are able to smell when their owners blood sugars rise or fall and are trained to alert to their owners. This in turn prevents the owners from collapsing, going into a Diabetic coma and potentially saves their lives everyday.
The amazing training Hypo Hounds provides gives people back their lives, their independence and freedom and more importantly prevents critical life threatening hospital admissions which in turn saves the NHS millions every year.
