melodysmom Seizure Dog 0 Mar 27 2013, 7:24 AM EDT by melodysmom

I'm looking for a seizure service dog for my daughter. Because of the amount of time it takes to get the dog, my daughter will be 5 by the time the dog comes home.

There is also a possibility of my daughter being autistic, therefore the dog will be trained in tasks for that as well.

We need a larger dog that can act as a brace to help my daughter up and to walk around after her seizure. We like long haired dogs. Obviously the dog needs to be good with kids her age. It also needs to be good with other animals, as we have two other dogs and a cat. This needs to be a dog that is mostly docile indoors, but the availability of a large yard to being taken on walks is not an issue at all - we can do that. A high possibility of seizure detection ability before they happen would also be good. This is a dog that will sleep in her bed at night and stay by her side during and after a seizure.

I am avoiding the main breeds - goldens, labs, and poodles, because they're so common, and I was given the ability to choose basically whatever breed I want.

Right now, I'm leaning towards a NAID dog. My daughter is drawn to them and so are we. The information I have read from the breeder websites and suggests that it would be a good dog for the task, as well as one of the breeders I've talked to.

Other breeds I'm considering are Irish Setters, GSD, and Border Collie.
