Dogs that assist people living with epilepsy are being trained under programs named Seizure Response Dogs, Seizure Assistance Dogs and Seizure Alert Dogs. The listed organizations train the dogs under their own guidelines and have differing criteria for eligibility for a service animal. The Epilepsy Foundation New England does not endorse any of these organizations or their services.
