Woman Suffers Heart Attack – Her Dog Does Everything To Save Her
He knows exactly what to do (Video)
Colt is a service dog who has learned how to alert and respond to the seizures of his human. Janaye suffers from severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) which causes her to have seizures. This puts her at more risk of further brain injury when she falls to the floor. Colt is a fully-trained service dog who is trained to protect his owner’s head from hitting the floor. Janaye filmed herself simulating seizures, which is part of her service dog’s training, as she has to ‘test him on everything that he knows often to make sure he still does it all reliably’.
“I pass out because of my TBI, and my heart issues cause by my seizures. My dog alerts 15mins or so beforehand, giving me enough time to get in a safe place and lay down. In the video, Colt can be seen rushing to push his head under Janaye’s, protecting it from the hard floor during the simulated seizure. ‘He is trained to do this in a certain way that keeps both him and me safe,’ Janaye writes. ‘He will not get hurting (sic) doing this the way he has been trained to. ‘I’m not actually there during a seizure so I would not be able to know if he did his job right or not.’
Her dog does everything to save her
Colt is able to detect seizures before they happen. ‘For seizures I have anywhere from 30 minutes – two hours, most times it’s enough time to take medication to prevent the seizure,’ says Janaye. ‘For pass out spells, I have about 15 minutes.’ Interestingly, seizure dogs are born with an innate ability to detect seizures, so not all dogs are capable of doing so. Watch the video, it’s amazing to see what this dog is able to do to help his owner!
