I have had 7 grand mal seizures now and have no idea what my auras are or if I even have them. I was considering a service dog. Does anyone have any resources, grants, ideas, etc... so that I can look into purchasing one in the near future?
There are some really useful sites and info that they provide on the internet, you can search for that by looking up support or sevice dogs websites. I know that you can either train your own dogs up or get others that are pre trained. I looked into it as I'd love to have a service dog as i dont get any aura so it would give me that extra bit of confidence and reassurance, but i didnt qualify for one, so i joined charities and donate to service dogs for their training and they give me regular info and updates.
there is 2 options. buying a puppy and training it to be a service dog or finding a pre train service dog? ours dog is not train service but she barks (sometimes) when i am having a seizure. she is afraid of hyper dog so thats why i dont have a trainer to be a service dog. the pre service dog is about 7,000-50,000 dollars but the dog can do everything. here's a link.... https://www.pawsitivityservicedogs.com/seizures...
I really like the idea of a service dog for the independent factor. However I believe once an animal is with us they should stay with us as long as they are on earth with us 😘🐶. Also I’m 5ft 10inches and my husband is at least 6ft 3inches and our children (1son 2daugjters) are even bigger and taller than us! Lol. And “My Family” has Chihuahua’s 😘🐶💗”. I believe it’s up to us to train and teach our animals ourselves and that it comes to them naturally 😘
Thank you so much Bryan! I have looked into that a little, it is just so hard to wrap my mind around how much it is. But I will definitely look more into it.
I hope all is well with you this evening. It’s unfortunate how people actually DO NEED these types of dogs just to stay well and do their best just live a life that allows them and their loved ones a sense of security. But it’s VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE to be able to afford the cost of one!! Only to have to return it once it has become part of the family. I would LOVE TO HAVE FREEDOM AND SECURITY just for myself to have the independence of a life where I can have the freedom to come and go and just be loved for who I am and protected as well 😘🙏🏼🦅😇💗. Thank you Bryan for the information and I truly hope you are doing good and mostly independently safe!! 😊🙏🏼🦅💗😊
