Q. Are there any videos that can help me teach my dog to alert for seizures?
I retired from the military and now have a seizure disorder due to a TBI (traumatic brain injury) I received while overseas. I have a 10 month old German Sheppard that I have trained in basic obedience, but I need to train her in seizure alert. I can't find any training facilities that are local to me. Are there any videos I can get to aid me in this process? Thank you for your time.

A. I’m not sure you can ‘train’ a dog for seizure alert. It’s my understanding that some dogs just naturally alert, I don’t know that there is any standard training process to teach a dog this.

Here’s an article that may help. http://www.epilepsy.com/articles/ar_1084289240
