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

Parker is a very lazy, cuddly, cute mini shnauzer who is always willing to please.  He is 4 months old at the present time and he is already able to sit, shake a paw, lay down, and die when you shoot him for a treat.  He loves his toys.  One of his favourites is his mini schnauzer stuffed puppy.  He has a wonderful family who love him unconditionally as he loves them.  He has already become part of the routine at home, especially at bedtime.  Around 10:30 pm in the evening he sits at the bottom of the bed and cries to get up so that he can enjoy lounging for a 1/2 hour before crate time.  Oh yes, and he loves to argue with the blow dryer every morning. Parker has brought so much love and happiness to our home.
