Allergen Alert Dogs typically wear a vest with pockets containing emergency information, medical information and or medication for the person.
These service dogs alert their handler to life threatening allergens that may be in the area including tree nuts, gluten or shellfish.
On the pocket the patch displays “In event of emergency check pockets”.
These service dogs are partnered with children but can also be seen partnered with any person who has life threatening allergy.
In the vest pocket or in the USB key these Allergen Alert dogs will also carry medical information and emergency protocol.
The handler of the dog may or may not have visible signs of disability.
