Do you know what you should do if a service dog approaches you without its owner?
It is possible that a service dog will approach a stranger if their owner is having a medical emergency.
Experts say that a service dog will usually nudge a person’s leg to get their attention.
If this happens to you, you should follow the dog back to its owner and call for medical assistance.
However, it is important to note that not all service dogs have been trained to approach strangers for help.
Dogs that are specially trained to do this could be “seizure response” dogs.
These dogs are trained to assist people who suffer from epileptic and non-epileptic seizures.
