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

I like to be with my master at all times.  I love to sleep on couches and have destroyed 3 so my master built one just for me. I also love to take walks when my knees are good and I love to walk in the river in the summer.  I can't swim but my master makes sure I get through the deep spots without any problem.  I hate smoke with a passion.  My favoutite things are my pillow which I suck on and my big Dino bone which is so yummy that I eat at least 3 a year.
My most cherised thing was my sister Heidi who died of cancer this past July.  I was so upset when she left that I didn't eat for a very long time.  I still get lonely for her and my new mate is OK but not the same.
