FAQs about Seizure Alert Dogs


1. What is Seizure Alert Dog?

A seizure alert dog is a type of service dog that is trained to find help or assist their partner during and/or after a seizure. Dogs chosen for this role will be able to naturally detect an oncoming seizure and are trained in a way to warn their partner of an oncoming seizure.


2. What about Seizure Response Dog?

It’s important to note that a seizure alert dog is different than a seizure response dog. Seizure Response Dogs are NOT trained to protect or predict seizure activity.


3. What can a seizure alert dog do?

Seizure alert dogs are able to assist their partner in many ways, including:

• Displaying alert behaviors before a seizure occurs

• Remaining close to its owner during a seizure to prevent injuries

• Alerting a caretaker, family member, or finding someone to help

• Fetching an alert device or medication

• Opening a door or turning on a light


4. How to Train Your Dog to Alert for Seizures

A dog's nose is so much better at smelling than a human's. They can actually tell when a seizure is about to happen by the scent of the chemicals released inside the victim. 

To help kickstart your training process, there are some things you're going to need. These include:

- The Right Dog: Some breeds are more suited to this kind of training than others. Beyond that, each dog's individual personality also impacts on whether they would make a good service dog or not.

- Professional Help: Whether you work with an organization or you hire a trainer with experience dealing with epilepsy assistance, you're going to want to work with someone who knows what they're doing. The way that your dog responds could really be life or death for the person involved.


5. Can I take my seizure alert dog into public places?

Under the ADA, service dogs are permitted to accompany you in public, including places where dogs are not typically allowed.

What Does It Mean To Be Certified?

It means your dog has been trained to perform the work or tasks as a service dog.

The primary purpose of certification is to ensure that your dog is fully trained and able to perform seizure alert service dog work and that you, the handler, understand how to lead your Assistance Dog/Service Dog through everyday situations, such as going to a store, a park, a hospital, a care home or any other public place.

Please note that while seizure alert dogs can provide invaluable assistance and support to those with epilepsy, it’s important to remember that they are not a cure-all. Seizure frequency and severity can vary from person to person, so even with a seizure alert dog, some seizures may still occur without warning. It’s also important to have a solid plan in place for how to care for your dog during and after a seizure, as they may be disoriented or tired afterward. If you’re considering getting a seizure alert dog, be sure to do your research and talk to your doctor or epilepsy specialist first.
