Medical alert service dog

A service dog that alerts in cases of life-threatening physical condition due to background illness such as diabetes, epilepsy, POTS syndrome and more.

A person with life-threatening background illness can often use a service dog who learns to warn him and others about a change in his physical condition even before it gets to a danger situation.

For example, a dog trained to alert a diabetic in case of a decrease of sugar in his body, a dog trained to alert an epilepsy patient a few seconds before a seizure so he can assess and sit, a dog that learns to mark dangerous foods for an allergic person, etc.

Many times, these dogs are also trained to call for help if the person is in danger.

Beyond the functional aspect, the service dog's owner enjoys additional benefits.

The service dog gives a sense of security, reduces the level of anxiety from emergencies and improves the owner's sense of control and sense of self-ability.

The service dog meets every person's basic need to love and be loved, which is a significant need especially for a person with disabilities who often suffers from deterrence or social isolation.

Moreover, in the social context, the service dog functions as a natural "ice breaker", contributing to social connections and as for children, the dog can even improve their social status.

Like any dog, the service dog is also seen as a life companion, who gives the owner joy in difficult times and a reason to get up in the morning. The sense of responsibility for the dog's well-being has a positive effect on the daily routine and the level of daily activity.
