For seizure response, our dogs are trained to look for and respond to their partner during and after a seizure. They may provide some intervention to prevent injury during a seizure and to get help. We do not train for seizure alert.

Specific tasks may include:

  • Lying close to their partner, nudging, circling, licking
  • Light or deep pressure
  • Retrieving the telephone and/or medication
  • Activating an emergency button or pull cord
  • Getting help by alerting another person in the environment
