Training a Dog to Detect Seizures

I know that there are professional trainers on here, but I was wondering, could you train a family dog (6 years old in June and a great nose) to smell out an oncoming seizure? My one year old son has been on medication for seizures for six months, and had his first cluster a few nights ago.


The problem is our dog usually sleeps in our room, not the boys' room. He is a Husky/hound/Shephard, very devoted to our one and four year olds. What organization would I need to contact to get more information? Thank you! I'll post pics later of Charlie the Dog, with his boys!

I would try two things. First, I would try contacting the American Kennel Club to see if there is anything that they can do to assist you. The other thing I would do would be to go online and, in your search bar, type in "seizure dogs" or "assistance dogs." Good luck!
