Smart Pups Seizure Response Assistance Dogs are trained to respond when their child is having a seizure through alerting a guardian adult. They are also trained to assist with post seizure recovery by providing comfort and support to their child to lean on when experiencing post seizure frailty.
Many of our dogs are able to predict and alert oncoming seizures up to 20 minutes before the onset. Although we do all we can to train a dog for this task, we can’t guarantee that our Smart Pups will always perform with complete success and reliability.
Many children with a Seizure Response Dog experience an unexplained decrease in seizure activity. This progress may be attributed to a decrease in stress due to the support and companionship of a loving companion dog.
