Seizure Response Dogs for People with Epilepsy

Epilepsy Seizure Response Dogs

Seizure Response Dogs

A seizure dog is a dog that has been trained (or has learned) to respond to a seizure in someone who has epilepsy. Dogs can be trained as service animals for people with seizures. The law protects people’s right to use service animals in public places. Service dogs can be trained to do a variety of tasks, including barking to alert caregivers when a seizure occurs, moving in a way to protect the person having a seizure, or activating an alarm.
