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
