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

Hi
I am Ben, I lived at my Owners House 6 year, till they gave me away. First I was frustrated that I can't be with my old family, but today I know why they had to gave me away, I am not really healthy, I got problems with breathing, because my lungs are to small and I can't walk stairs so much, however my family moeved to canada (from Germany) I could'n fly with a plain because they didn't know if I would be alive when I am in Canada. So they found a new nice home for me, with a child and to nice people. I miss my old family and I think they miss me too, but I am alive thats good. I like kids, I like dogs and cats. I like almost everything. I am not a big eater, I like to eat dry food and sometimes some toast without anything on it. What I can remeber of my old family was one day, when "I" hit a car, it sounds funny, I hit a parking car, everybody was laughing at me, after that I never touched a car again. I know that I was a big help for my owners, I was there for them when they needed someone to hug. I think that is almost everything, what was important. I just can ssay never hurt your owner, it is the most important thing for you on the world, but never let hurt you too much.
Bye reader
Love Ben
