Reason Why You Should Not Distract Or Pet A Service Dog.
“Here is Molly doing a seizure alert. If you ever wonder why people say do not distract or pet a service dog, this is why! If Molly was distracted she could of missed this alert. Today Molly has saved me once again! So Kaylee just happened to be taking video of Chai (the dog I’m training) for George…(my boss) and Molly got up from her down stay to come alert me. It cut off because we ran out of space. But she went straight into response mode.
What she did was tell me to sit down, and she forced me on the ground. Molly usually gives me 30 minutes before a seizure. I was able to get emergency meds in and I’m okay.” 💕
