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

We brought Pepsi to Canada when he was only 5 weeks old but he was first introduced to us at 4 weeks he came from Portugual where he had many brothers and sisters that were all looking for a home.  We were on vacation at the time and our families neighbour mentioned that her dogs had just had puppies and that she was giving them away for anyone who would want them becuase she did not want them.  So my mother picked Pepsi because he was the only one that stood out with the different hair colour all of the other puppies were black.
His Mother was a miniture Dachshund (Colour: Black) and his Father was a Shi-Poo (Colour: White).
Pepsi is a very energetic puppy that loves to chew everything he always manages to surprise us with his crazy little stunts that loves to pull, for instance we bought him a fenced pen and he has managed to climb the fence and jump out of it even though he's so tiny, and now he has even eaten a lamp wire that was hooked into the outlet.
Pepsi is a very friendly puppy who loves people as well as other dogs no matter what size or breed they are.  he is full of energy and loves to play and lick your face or snuggle up beside you when your watching a movie.  He does not bark at other dogs or people.
Most scariest momement we have ever had with Pepsi must of been when he was 7 weeks old and squeezed in between the railings and fell about 8 feet onto concrete I thought I would lose him that night but he has a very strong heart and made it without and any broken bones or sprains.
