Oakley is Amber’s personal task-trained service dog, meaning he has been through years of extensive training. One of the many tasks Oakley performs is de-escalating his owner’s panic attacks, a task which he performs excellently in this video.

He has been taught to break Amber’s hands apart and away from her face. Oakley is supposed to encourage her to put her hands, and even her face, on him, which calms her down. Credit: Amber Aquart via Storyful
