Description: I had a bad seizure day and Colt a weim/lab was alerting non stop so I set up the camera in hopes of getting better footage then last time. When he alerted he came and laid his head on me staring at me, then got up on me, pushing into me, then started to paw at me. If I try to get up he holds me down by getting on top of me and pushing into me. Even if I tell him to get down and I try to get up he will come back and hold me down. I did this just to show what he does. I hope this brings awareness to the real work that service dogs can do and why it is so important to not distract a service dog from its job. With out his alerts I can't take medication to stop or shorten the seizure and I could stop breathing and die. Service dogs do serious work and it can be life threatening if they are distracted from their job. ▪️ Frequently Asked Questions▪️Q: What breed is Colt?A: Weimaraner/English LabradorQ: Where did I get Colt?A: Colt was hand picked from a litter by a behavioralist and myself.

For licensing/usage, please email [email protected] 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. ▪️ Frequently Asked Questions▪️ Q: What breed is Colt? A: Weimaraner/English Labrador Q: Where did I get Colt?

Hi I am Janaye, a 23yr old female. Service dog Colt and weim/lab alerts and responds to seizures as well as pass out spell (syncope) I DO NOT have Pots. I pass out because of my TBI, and my heart issues cause by my seizures. This is how he is trained to respond to a pass out spell. He alerts 15mins or so before hand, giving me enough time to get in a safe place and lay down. We will get into pass out position (description and shown in video) He will then lick my hands when I pass out and listen to my breathing and heart beat to make sure nothing is wrong. When I start to come to he will do DPT (deep pressure therapy) and lick my face, this helps bring me back around much faster. I am able to live a simi normal life because of my service dog. Not all disabilities are visible. I shared this in hopes of bringing awareness to that, and also that service dog can be doing a life saving job that may not be Apparent to someone on the outside and they should be left alone to do their life saving jobs, do not distract a service dog in anyway, no petting, talking to them or staring at them. The dog has a job to do. Please do not judge this video, it took a lot for me to post such a personal moment. No copy right intended, music: I won't give up by Jason Mraz. Credit giving at end of video as well. To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email [email protected] ▪️ Frequently Asked Questions▪️ Q: What breed is Colt?

BEFORE YOU COMMENT (especially about my dog) - please at least skim the top comments to see if your question has been answered, or look at one of the 3 comment response videos, especially before you jump to a conclusion, type something in anger and make yourself look stupid. tl;dr - the person having the seizure is me, the person taking the video is my husband, he did it because I asked him to, he and my dog are both doing all the right things, and CBD oil is not a viable option for me right now. Wow, this sort of blew up. Originally recorded for my doctor (if you have seizures, having a loved one get one on video is a HUGE help in diagnosis and treatment), I posted this video for my Tumblr, http://beppilepsy.tumblr.com, shortly after a video of a woman having a seizure at a grocery store went viral because the quick-thinking cashier grabbed the woman's baby. I kept seeing "this should never have been posted, it's EMBARRASSING." I posted this because no one should be embarrassed by their seizures. Ever. I'm glad it's gotten so many views because the way my husband took care of me was textbook seizure first aid. (Interesting fact I've learned from commenters - Bucky is actually doing what a service dog would do, with no training whatsoever. Licking the saliva off of a seizing person's mouth can prevent choking.) Notice how my husband lays me down on my left side, DOESN'T try to restrict my movements (or ffs put anything in my mouth), and speaks in a soothing voice as I'm coming out of it. Thank you for all the supportive comments. This seizure happened before I had my vagal nerve stimulator installed, and I've been mostly seizure free since then. More on Bucky - I'm just gonna copy/paste a reply to a comment because I get so many berating my husband for not "keeping that dog off her": Scenario: your wife has debilitating seizures, but the epilepsy center won't consider her a candidate for life-changing surgery until they actually witness a seizure. They've tried a couple of times, flashing lights in her face and whatnot in a controlled environment, but they really just come completely at random so they only way you can prove it to them is to videotape her having one. For the past year, you've been trying to get the opportunity, but she seizes when you're not home or she falls and hits her head and you have to tend to that instead of getting out the camera. One day, she FINALLY has one that she sort of sees coming, while you're home, and you're able to get her lying down on the couch and prop your phone up against a pillow and start recording. Meanwhile, your 14 pound dachshund, who has anxiety issues to begin with and freaks out when his mom has a seizure, starts trying to jump on her. You pull him off her as much as you can, but you're THERE and you can tell he's not hurting her, and if he was you'd stop him right away because come on. What do you do? My health and safety is my husband's number one priority. Always. In this instance, he knew it was more important to get this on video for my doctor than it was to keep a small dog from licking my face. Thanks to this video, I was able to get my vagal nerve stimulator implanted, and it's greatly reduced the frequency and severity of my seizures. WARNING: Several users are commenting in this and other epilepsy related threads, spreading misinformation about what actually causes seizures and what quick miracle cure they have, even copy/pasting the exact same thing elsewhere in the thread. I block/delete them as soon as I see them, but just as a general rule of thumb, DO NOT TAKE MEDICAL ADVICE FROM PEOPLE ON YOUTUBE.

Hailey Ashmore has several conditions, including: epilepsy, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, reactive hypoglycemia, severe allergies, gastroparesis, and asthma. The 16-year-old from Dallas, TX relies on the help of her service dog, Flynn. According to Fetching Apparel, Hailey was once a dancer on the varsity drill team, student council member, violinist and at the top of her class. However, with her conditions progressing, Hailey can only take classes online. She is dependent on her parents, nurse, medications, and Flynn. The condition she grapples with the most is epilepsy, which causes seizures. Seizures are very serious; in another instance, a mom had a seizure and was unable to tend to her infant at the mall. “To get a service dog you must be disabled to the point where you can no longer function at a normal quality of life without the assistance of service dogs,” said Hailey. “It takes around two years of intense training and thousands of dollars (if you owner train) to actually be able to call your dog a service dog. A service dog can go anywhere its handler goes, with the exception of a sterile environment such as an operating room or burn unit, a religious building — such as a church, or some federal buildings,” she said. The job of a service dog is very important to its human. See why Hailey is pleading with strangers to get them to stop petting her dog without permission.)

Kai has struggled to make friends due to his inabilities to communicate but when she saw kai cuddling up to golden retriever, Tornado, like it was natural she couldn't hold it together. The photo of Tornado and Kai was posted to the 4 Paws for Ability Facebook page where thousands of people have shared it.
