|You might be thinking of two different things. An alert is when a dog predicts something is going to happen, like when a dog tells you you're going to have a seizure before the seizure starts. Dogs don't alert to low blood sugar, meaning they don't tell you your sugar is going to drop before it does drop. They signal you when your sugar has dropped. A signal is when they tell you something has happened that you might not have noticed yet.
So it seems like you are saying you want your dog to signal you when you have started to sweat more. One problem I foresee is that your dog may not be able to tell if you are sweating because you are starting to have a flashback or if you are sweating because it's hot or because you're exercising or what. Your dog would be signalling you a lot in the summer time!
Are there other things you do when you start to have a flashback that your dog could be trained to pick up on, things you don't do other times? Like, when I start to have an anxiety attack, I often do sweat, but other things I do include clenching my fists and rocking back and forth a bit.
