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

shy? not me.

is my dog Tanker! Tanker was born February 20th, 2001. We only adopted
Tanker from a gentleman in the paper about 2 and a half weeks ago.
Tanker is part German Shepherd and part Akita. He is a lovely dog. Tanker
enjoys playing with his older cat sister and younger dog brother and

younger cat brother.
younger brothers like to play but his older cat sister is not to fond
of him just yet, however Tanker is the type to keep trying to get her
to like him.
It was funny one time Tanker went to go to give his older cat sister
Cuddles a kiss and she hissed to the point where she made Tanker laydown.

It was cute he still tries to play with her and I don't think he will
give up till she starts playing back but we will see what will happen.

is the type of dog who is also a lover not a fighter he likes to play
fetch, wrestle with humans and pets not to hurt though just to have
likes to be cuddle with. He likes to be hugged and kissed he is just
Tanker a big loving dog who loves to be loved.
