Weekly club meeting, including 2 course meal, followed by a presentation by Matthew Kefford about Medical Detection Dogs.

About Medical Detection Dogs
Medical Detection Dogs trains dogs to detect the odour of human disease. It is at the forefront of the research into the fight against cancer and helping people with life-threatening diseases.

Detection dogs are trained to find the odour of diseases, such as cancer, in samples such as urine, breath and swabs. Medical Alert Assistance dogs are trained to detect minute changes in an individual’s personal odour triggered by their disease* and alert them to an impending medical event. Medical detection dogs receive no Government funding for the work they do and rely entirely on the generosity of donations from trusts and the public.
