If you have a health condition or a disability, then you may find that a service dog can help you with various things. You can have a service dog trained for you, you can purchase one who has already been trained, or you may even be able to make your own dog a service dog. This article will help you to understand some of the different things a service dog can help you with.

Help when you have a seizure

If you have seizures, then you know how worrisome it can be to go places, never knowing if you are going to have one. As sad as it is, having a seizure in public can even put you at risk of having your belongings stolen, not to mention how worried you have to be about the possibility of falling and hitting your head or getting hurt in a number of other ways. When you have a service dog trained to detect your seizures ahead of time, they will warn you so you have time to sit somewhere safe, and they will stay with you and guard you and your belongings.

Help when you have diabetes

If you have diabetes, then you know you have to constantly worry about checking your sugar levels and keeping them at the right reading on your glucose tester. When you have a service dog trained to warn you of problematic sugar levels, you will be warned in time to eat or drink something to keep you stable. Also, should you pass out or have other complications, the dog can sit there with you or even be trained to bring your medication if you find you are unable to retrieve it due to weakness.

Help when you have hearing loss

If you are new to hearing loss, then you can have a very difficult time adjusting. Having a service dog can be a big help. The dog can help you with the things you use to be able to do on your own, so you can get your freedom back. They can alert you to someone trying to get your attention, help you when you are in a dangerous situation, and help you in many other ways. They can be trained to help with specific things you want them to do so they fit in your life and allow you to continue doing all your favorite things.

Help when you are in a wheelchair

If you are in a wheelchair, then you can have a hard time doing some things that your chair can get in the way with. Having a service dog can be a big help because it can be trained to assist you with reaching things you can't and doing other things for you that you can't do on your own.
