Service Dogs and Autistic Children – Pet Tip 253

Dogs help humans in so many ways. They help with companionship, with tasks that they carry out for us and sometimes they help make every day living much easier. Perhaps the best demonstration of this fact is when dogs help people with disabilities. Many of us have seen dogs helping blind people and many have heard of dogs that feel when a seizure in an epileptic person is about to occur and then protect them from injury. Dogs can also help aid autistic children and parents of autistic children in many ways as well. Recent studies suggest that the prevalence of autistic children in Canada may be 1 in 165 children or higher. Therefore, many people may well personally know of an autistic child in their extended family, or know of friends or acquaintances that have an autistic child. So how can dogs help these autistic children?

The National Service Dogs (NSD) organization in Ontario Canada, is one of the best organizations that specifically help train dogs to make the lives of autistic children better. You might be wondering how a service dog can be useful to autistic children

Geneva gentle and so sweet a winning smile for all you'd greet. Always happy never sad, not a single thing about you bad. A true and loving Saint Bernard, but to do a trick was much too hard. You truly had a heart of gold, and suffered much but never told. The time we shared was short in measure, but your memory we'll always treasure. Not long enough with us you'd bide, we miss you walking by our side. But the day will come when over yonder, through all eternity we will wander.
