Canine Assistants was founded in Alpharetta, Georgia, in 1991. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to providing service dogs to children and adults with epilepsy, physical disabilities and other special needs.
Seizure response dogs:
These dogs not only provide assistance, but they also can instill confidence by enabling their recipient to do activities they may be reluctant to do because they have epilepsy. They also provide companionship and contribute to the overall emotional well-being of the person they are placed with.
Seizure response dogs immediately change lives for their owners, but their extensive training can take up to 18 months.
That's why Canine Assistants work together with The Epilepsy CompanyTM, UCB, Inc. in the training of every dog. Their partnership ensures that each dog gets the extensive training that it needs, and that more needs of the epilepsy community are met.
