Amber Oliver found great comfort in her service dog, Oakley, while experienced a sudden bout of a panic attack.


A video uploaded to YouTube by Caters Clips showed Oliver’s dog immediately reacting to Oliver’s potential panic attack by rubbing against her legs and getting her attention.

The 5-year-old dog was personally trained by Oliver herself, who is a certified professional dog trainer from Massachusetts.

She trained her dog to pick up on ‘changes to her body temperature, breathing, and heart rate and alert her that she may be about to suffer a panic attack,’ according to the description to the video posted.

Even in the YouTube video, Oakley immediately understands that Oliver is in an emotional distress. Realizing the crisis, he quickly sprang into action and turned all her attention onto himself.

Rubbing against her legs, Oakley places himself directly in front of Oliver’s face and puts its head on her chest, trying to distract her.

He seems to be trained to stop Oliver from putting her hands on her face as the dog gives it his everything to stop her from doing just that.

Oliver is later seen hugging Oakley and caressing its fur softly as she seeks a support in her time of emotional crisis.

Oakley then coolly places himself in between her knees and allows Oliver to wrap her arms around him and nuzzle his face.
