Seizure Alert Dogs

I found another site about dogs that can detect seizures. This lady is lucky enough to have one that can. I am skeptical about the ability to train dogs for this, but I suppose it may be possible. For me, the jury is still out. Check out her site - Seizure Alert Dogs

I've read some about this. They say that dogs do not need much training. Our dog often tried to tell me about my daughter's seizures before they happen, and he's had no training at all. It is amazing, and I think a great thing for those with Epilepsy who want to have some independance.

That is awesome that you have such a dog. Do you know of anyone that has done research as to whether it is a smell or sound they hear? Or whether it is something about the persons behavior?
