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

My name is DoubleJ's Diamond in the Ruff (Casey) and I am 13 months old now.  My owner's son Mitchell is my real owner and I love spending time with him watching TV and playing fetch outside.  Someday I will have puppies, just like my mom Alex.  I am a very pretty girl with a very soft happy expression and temperment.  I have now learned not to snatch toys and run away with them.  I love to lay on my owner's feet while they are watching TV or at the computer.  I also love going for long walks in the bush where I can run and play with my other golden siblings.  There are 3 others you know, Cody, Rankin and Alex (my mom).  I need to go now and sack out in front of the fire, my favourite spot!
