I am a 13-month-old Goldendoodle who is learning to assist my human, Zoe because she only has one arm and sometimes needed my help. I am learning how to open doors, pick up anything she drops (like her pencil while we are at school or her phone). I am also learning how to carry her books and school supplies; how to help with grocery shopping and dressing; and how to dial 9-1-1 in case of an emergency. I have many jobs that I am excited to help Zoe with, but my favorite thing to do with her is to put my toys in her lap so we can play fetch!

I am a 5-month-old Labrador, and I am being raised by my puppy-training foster family so I can become a seizure-response dog when I am all grown up. Someday, I will be heading to the Epilepsy Foundation to be paired with a human who needs me! I will be trained to do things like getting help when we need it — whether in a public place or at home— and how to call 9-1-1 if my human needs emergency assistance. I will also learn how to swipe a magnet across my human’s chest to help lessen the intensity of a seizure and I will be able to retrieve a special bag with emergency medicine as well. I will be able to stand very still and brace my human when they need assistance getting up from a seizure, or in any other way they need me.

I am a 2-year-old Labrador and I am being trained to assist my new human, Vanessa, who is deaf and has epilepsy. I will be alerting her when the phone rings or when someone knocks at the door, and I will be able to then lead her to the phone or the door so she can answer it. I will alert her when someone is calling her name (so she isn’t startled if someone reaches out and touches her to get her attention — or when people are trying to get her attention who are not aware she is deaf). So that she does not fall, hit her head and remain unconscious, I am trained to call 9-1-1 and/or a family member to get her help. One of my favorite things to do is swim in the pool or pond. I can’t stop myself from getting in once I spot the water!

Riley

I am a 1.5-year-old Labrador. I am in training to assist Alexis, who is 19 years old and has a cognitive impairment and epilepsy. Her seizures are so intense that she often stops breathing. Because of this, Alexis has had to sleep with one of her parents every night because they are afraid she will have a seizure in the night and they won’t be able to hear her. My job is to sleep with Alexis and be alert so that I can go to her parents’ room and alert them if she has a seizure at night. I will also be able to retrieve crucial medication to help shorten the long and intense gran mal seizures that Alexis has. I get to go to work with Alexis so she feels more confident and knows she has help when a seizure comes on. My favorite thing to do is have my belly scratched which makes me smile and show my teeth when I am happy!

Colonel

I am a 4-month-old chocolate Labrador. I am being raised by my foster family so I can eventually become a seizure-response dog. After my puppy training, I will be heading to the Epilepsy Foundation to be paired with a human who can use my help. I will be trained to get help when we need it — whether in a public place or at home— and how to call 9-1-1 if my human needs emergency assistance. I will be taught how to swipe a magnet across my human’s chest to assist in lessening the intensity of a seizure, and I will also be able to retrieve a special bag with emergency medicine. I will be able to stand very still and brace my human when they need assistance getting up from a seizure, or in any other way they need me.

Fergus

I am a 2-year-old Bernedoodle and I am in training to help a veteran who has PTSD and a traumatic brain injury. I will be able to wake him up during night terrors and remind him to take his medicine. I am able to provide a “hug” when I sense that he is anxious and can pretend to have to relieve myself (by nudging his hand) when I sense he needs to leave an uncomfortable public situation. I will be able to do this so that people won’t think he is being rude if he needs to leave abruptly because of a panic attack. My human often loses consciousness and has hit his head on the furniture when he has been home alone. I will be there to call 9-1-1 if he is unable to get up right away after a fall so someone can come and help him. My favorite thing to do is stand on my two back feet and put my front paws on my human’s shoulders. When I do that I am over 6 feet tall! I am a very big boy!

Bayou

I am a 6-month-old yellow Labrador and my puppy-training foster family is training me so that I can become a seizure-response dog when I am all grown up. Eventually, I will be heading to the Epilepsy Foundation to be paired with a human who needs my help! I will be trained to do things like getting assistance when we need it — whether in a public place or at home— and how to call 9-1-1 if there is an emergency that I can’t help with. I will also learn how to swipe a magnet across my human’s chest to help lessen the intensity of a seizure and I will be able to retrieve a special bag with emergency medicine as well. I will be able to stand very still and brace my human when they need assistance getting up from a seizure, or in any other way they need me.

Diesel

I am a 6-month-old Labrador, and I am being raised by my puppy-training foster family so I can help my boy with Autism and seizures when I am all grown up. I have already been assigned my human. He is a little boy that has seizures and is Autistic . I will be trained to do things like getting help when we need it — whether in a public place or at home— and how to call 9-1-1 if my human needs emergency assistance. I will be able to retrieve a special bag with emergency medicine as well and track him if he decides to explore without his grown ups.
