Anxiety Service Dog in Action

A service dog named Oakley is trained to detect panic and anxiety attacks on its owner. In this short clip you can see how the dog senses an anxiety attack and immediately the dog goes to help right away. This is what Oakley’s owner has to say: One of the many tasks Oakley performs is alerting to anxiety/panic attacks and de-escalating them. He has been taught to break my hands apart and away from my face and is supposed to encourage me to put my hands and even face on him, which calms me down. I think he did an excellent job!
