Thumbs up Service Dog protects my head during Seizure

This is how Colt a Weim/Lab is trained to block my head during a seizure, because I have a TBI it is very dangerous for me to hit my head, I can literally die if I hit my head really bad again. This is only a reenactment, this is NOT a real seizure. And no of course I'm not really hitting my head in this video. This is just us keeping up with his training, I have to test him on everything that he knows often to make sure he still does it all reliably. He is trained to do this in a certain way that keeps both him and me safe, he will not get hurting doing this the way he has been trained to. I'm not actually there during a seizure so I would not be able to know if he did his job right or not. The middle video is basically a blooper, I laughed so hard, the floor was super slippery and he had a hard time getting his body under my 10lb head. The important thing that makes me super proud is that he never stops trying. He always looks back to make sure I am safe and keeps trying till I am. I am so blessed to have him. He has saved my life in many ways.

Wow. Just wow...

Default Re: Service Dog protects my head during Seizure

Many animals are sensitive to people's medical conditions naturally, and many can be trained to alert for them. They are truly our 'companions'.

Strangely enough, my cat will wake me up if (not all the time, but too many times for it to be coincidence) my blood sugar goes too low. Since sweating is part of the 'going low' process, perhaps he smells something off, and decides he needs to wake me.
