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

Rosie is a (approx.)  six year old Beagle. My family rescued her from an SPCA near we live. She was found roaming the streets along with her young brother. (Both about three years) Unfortunatly, my parents didn't want two dogs, so we had to leave her brother behind. Now, a older dog, Rosie spends most of her time laying around the house. She can no longer go for walks since she had a near-death experiance with a spinal injury. (And now she's fat) Sometimes I think about how close I came to loosing her and how much she means to me. I love you Rosie, and you mean the world to me, I will never let you go.
