Seizure Alert Dog Training Certification – Oregon and Washington State
Amanda from Medford Oregon wants to know how she should go about getting her dog who is training for seizure alert work (a dog who should be able to dial 911 on a dog phone, go get help during a seizure, alert to oncoming episodes and bring abortive medications in an emergency) certified as a certified service dog and how much it will cost. Watch this Medical Alert Dog Monday video to get my answer on how much she should be paying for certification.
So what’s your opinion? Do you think dogs should have to complete some sort of temperament and obedience test before being able to access the public as a service dog? If so, post this video on your Facebook page and leave a comment with your opinion.
