I meant what happens if she has something happen while locked inside the port-o-lette. (IE: 8-10 seizures per month)
how is the dog going to know, or be able to do anything while the owner is locked inside. The dog might be able to alert someone near by of the danger inside, but still, 3 hours from medical services, and who knows how long the owner will be cooking inside.
I understand the dogs are well trained, I know a dog is perfectly capable of "sitting" but a week of dehydration, explosions, overheating, and 50,000 unpredictable people running around....I dunno, Superman had a well trained animal as well, and so did Sigfried, and we know how those stories go. I hardly am able to tell how a person is going to act let alone an animal who can't speak out on the playa. People should consider worse case scenarios. At the very least she should bring a human companion who is trained to help her and can communicate for her in english.
but what do I know, there may be a dog whisperer near by that can talk to he lil' guy if she needs help.

They don't take some random Jack Russel and give a couple of weeks training and say "you're a service dog now!" It may not be wise to take the dog, but let's not take it for solid reasons, not goofy ones.
"Up to" Isn't that just a best case scenario? I don't count on best case scenarios and I don't think people should either. Especially, in an harsh environment. I think if she is going to do this, she should at the very least also bring a human companion. She even admitted she has memory problems and anxiety.
