Everyone knows what service dogs are, and how they are specially trained to help those who suffer from a variety of disabilities and needs. But we probably don’t know exactly what that looks like in most cases – now we can.
One woman who endures seizures shared a training video where she shows how Colt, her service dog, helps prevent injury when she experiences an episode.
Back in 2012, Janaye suffered a traumatic brain injury. As a result, it now poses a danger if she were to strike her head during a seizure. Thanks to Colt, she has someone by her side to help guard her against any potential injury.
And recently, she released a training video to show others exactly how Colt helps her during her seizures.
As she wrote on YouTube, “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.”
She currently has a GoFundMe campaign going in order for her to raise money towards a SmartDrive wheelchair – something that will allow her and Colt to get around much easier.
