Service Dog Senses Panic Attack And Reacts Immediately

July 14, 2018

Today I was asked "is that a real service dog?"

I responded "Yes, and a real good one too."

Oakley alerted and acted 3 times at the airport today. I caught the last ones on video because I could feel them coming. One of the many tasks Oakley performs is alerting to anxiety/panic attacks and de-escalating them. He has been taught to break my hands apart and away from my face and is supposed to encourage me to put my hands and even face on him - which calms me down. I think he did an excellent job!

There is so much to say on this matter, but I will just leave this video here for you to see for yourself. Sharing this video and these things make me vulnerable, but I'm sharing them with you so you can see how this dog has changed my life. This video was much longer but was edited down for viewing purposes.
