Medical Seizure Response Dogs
SDWR’s Seizure Response Dogs provide protection and relief to those who suffer from seizure disorders. There are a variety of seizure disorders our service dogs can assist with. Our Seizure Response Dogs are responsive, not preventive, meaning they do not detect seizures but rather aid their handler in the event that a seizure does occur. Individuals who are coping daily with the effects of a seizure disorder can find endless support through SDWR’s Seizure Response Dogs. SDWR places golden retrievers and labrador retrievers, in EXTREME cases due to doctor-verified allergies, we can also place doodles.

DISCLAIMER: SDWR seizure response dogs are NOT trained to protect or predict seizure activity. However, after several years with a client, some may develop the ability to alert their owner of an oncoming seizure. This behavior is not guaranteed to develop, nor to be consistent if it does develop. All outcomes and results may vary based on individual case by case basis. As part of the SDWR difference, we offer all of our clients a Lifetime Training Guarantee which you can learn more about here.
