Service Dog Patches for Your Diabetes Service Dog

Posted by sitstaydogs

Aug 29, 2014 1:01:00 PM

It is no secret that diabetes is a growing problem, not just in the US, but all over the world! Although treatment has been improved in the last few years, the rates at which people are being diagnosed just keeps on growing. In fact, upwards of 30,000 people are newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes every single year. Insulin can help you to control your diabetes, but the constant highs and lows of blood sugar can lead to a variety of debilitating problems, which is why service dogs for diabetes are so miraculous. Your service dog keeps you safe and sound, thank them with one of our service dog patches.

When your blood sugar gets low, and the dizziness and headaches start to make themselves known, you will most likely grab some fruit juice or a cookie to even it out. The problem is that, with these kinds of snacks, it is all too easy to go beyond balancing out your blood sugar and end up with high blood sugar. Now that your blood sugar is high again, you wall need to take insulin to lower it, and the vicious cycle starts again. A service dog for diabetes will be able to sense the signs of an abnormal blood sugar and warn you before things get out of control.

The rate of diabetes diagnoses are unfortunately still growing. If you are a proud owner of a service dog, and you want to show them how thankful you are to them, a great place to start is by visiting us here at SitStay. We offer high quality gear for service dogs and pets alike. Don't wait, shop with us today.

Everything Your Service Dog Needs

Posted by sitstaydogs

When you have a service dog or therapy dog, it's important to have access to everything your dog needs. Service and therapy dogs frequently visit places that are off-limits to pets, and it's important for them to be properly recognized as service animals. This not only ensures that the dogs will always be welcome, but also helps identify them to curious passersby.

Vests are especially helpful and make it easier to identify service dogs. Store and office staff will typically identify a dog as a service or therapy animal when a vest is worn. Bright colors like red, blue, green and orange are easily spotted. These vests are made from durable material and options with reflective material for walking at night are available.

Patches help identify dogs used for service or therapy work to the public. It's very common for people to be tempted to pat dogs that they see in public with their owners. However, dogs involved in service or therapy work need to be able to stay focused on the task at hand. 

Some of the ways in which these patches help include:

  • Letting members of the general public know that they are service animals and allowed to be in a store, restaurant or other public place
  • Pointing out when service dogs are in training and must be exposed to the same situations as full service animals
  • Advising interested passersby to refrain from patting the dog or asking permission first, to avoid needlessly distracting him or her
  • Notifying the public that the dog assists its owner with mobility or hearing issues and alerts others to seizures or other emergencies
  • Alerting others to the fact that he or she is a therapy dog, allowed to enter nursing homes and other healthcare facilities 
  • Informing others that the dog is used for search purposes

There are several accessories that are helpful for people who own or train service dogs. Professionally designed service dog cards can be presented to anyone who questions a dog's legal ability to be in a public place. These cards advise the reader of the owner's rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act. 

Other helpful accessories include web harnesses designed to be used with service dog vests. They are sturdy enough for the demands of even the biggest dogs. When owners have sight or mobility issues, it is especially important to make sure the dog is always securely leashed.

Change the World With Service Dog Patches

Posted by sitstaydogs

April 27th is National Pet Parents' Day, and in honor of that special day, New York Jets' wide receiver Eric Decker has been working with Veterinary Pet Insurance to change the world, one service dog at a time. They have been raising money to rescue, care for, and train service dogs for veterans who are returning from the war with disabilities. The average cost to take a dog from a shelter and provide them with the necessary training is around $25,000; Deckers Dogs has made it possible for more and more veterans to get the support that they need.

Service dogs can do so many things for veterans, physically and emotionally. They can help make the transition to using a prosthesis much easier, they can turn on and off lights, and they can even provide emotional support for veterans with PTSD. These are just a few of the many things that service dogs can do for our veterans, but in reality nothing can quite compare to the support that provide us. 

At SitStay we are dedicated to showing support for the service dogs that serve our veterans every single day. We do that by teaming up with many organizations throughout our country and by providing high quality, cost effective service dog patches and vests. You can choose from a variety of vests and patches, but each one is made with the same high level of durability and comfort. Enjoy great deals and free shipping on every order of $75 or more when you shop our site today.
