Madison-Based Service Dog Company Facing Lawsuit

(Richmond)- A Madison County dog trainer that sells service dogs is at the center of a scam lawsuit. The company called “Service Dogs by Warren Retrievers” says it offers diabetic alert dogs highly trained to detect spikes or dips in blood sugar. Properly trained dogs are able to perform the possibly life-saving service, but Virginia’s attorney general says the dogs being sold by the company for tens of thousands of dollars are often just poorly trained puppies.
