Seizure Response Dogs

Seizure Response Dogs

Seizure response dogs can be wonderful service dogs for people living with epilepsy. If properly trained, dogs can alert an individual when a seizure is occurring, lay between the floor and the person having a seizure to protect them from injury, get help and signal their owner to get into a safe position before the seizure occurs. The process of securing a seizure response dog is both long and expensive and families must do due diligence in selecting a breeder and trainer.
