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! My name is Hudson. I'm a little nervous cause this is my first time on the web, but I thought I would give it a shot. I'm actually a Texas boy, but Mom, Dad, and my brother Rebel just moved out here to California. I can't complain. I love the beach! However, my favorite thing to do is eat!!! (but I don't like onions!-Yuck) Also, I like to snuggle with anyone willing! Anyone wanna snuggle? Let's see what else, there's really nothing I don't like.  Oh, there is one thing, large yard equipment gives me the willies. My most embarassing moment must be when I clear the room with my gas! I can't help it sometimes. I'm just a pup and I tend to deflate when I sleep. Thanks for checkin out my page.
Take care,
Hud
