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 baby Apollo, I love you so much. To me you arent just a dog or a pet like any other. You are special, You are mine. When I looked into your eyes for the last time I knew you were hurting I just hope that you understand that it was better this way, you were sick and suffering if it was up to me you would never leave my side but this wasnt up to me, God was calling you to join him, I cant be selfish, you deserved to rest. You were a good dog, always loyal, always loving, and you are in my heart forever. We were made for each other, God knew you were to be mine. Go on and have fun with God now, ill see you soon, and when we do it'll be forever this time. Wait for me in heaven & we'll meet again. I love you Apollo, thank you for loving me and always being there for me. I LOVE YOU!!!!!

 **********With much love:Sandra**********
