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

I just came to my new family 2 weeks ago.  I love it here.  I get to run around free.  I live on a farm and have 3 horses to look after.  I also have two sisters to watch over and my new best friend is Jovi.  She really is more like a daughter to me, she is so small.  My favorite thing to do is keep coyotes away.  I don't like them one bit.  My sisters like to lead me around the yard on my leash even though I don't need the leash.  They have so much fun that I don't mind at all.  Every time Mom opens her van door I try to get in.  I like to have a car ride once in a while too.  Right now I need to go and do my rounds, after all, I do have coyotes to keep away!
