Seizure dog support

We are raising money for our sweet little tot for a seizure response dog. He has a rare epilepsy disease which causes him to have drop attacks and pass out. He can have over 50 seizures a day.  His type of  epilipsy disease is extremely resistant to medications and diets. We have been unsuccessful thus far in treating him. These dogs can do many wonderful things to help him live a better life everyday. A seizure response dog (SRD) (also known as seizure dog) is a dog demonstrating specific assisting behaviour during or immediately after a person's epileptic seizure or other seizure .When reliably trained such dogs can serve as service dogs for people with epilepsy. Tasks for seizure dogs may include, but are not limited to

Find someone to help
Activate an emergency response system
Stimulate a person to help them "wake up" after a seizure
Use body weight to keep the person in a specific position
Act as a brace to help the person up
Retrieve a phone or medication
Physically remove the patient from an unsafe situation (i.e. middle of a street)
A dog demonstrating specific behaviour prior to a persons epileptic seizure is also referred to as seizure alert dog (SAD).Reports suggest that some dogs can be trained to anticipate epileptic seizures. We are so grateful for the wonderful people in our lives supporting us and being there for us. Thank you ❤️
