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 name is Buster.  My favorite lounging spot is in the backyard next to the palm tree where it's nice and sunny.  I can sleep there for a long time.  My mommy says I look dead when I'm sleeping there.  I like to run around the back yard and pretend I'm a famous runner winning a race on the track.  I also like to play football with my Mommy. We Play for hours.    I hate cats.  I just don't like them.    
 One of my most embarrasing moment is when I tried to run inside the house thru the sliding door.  I didn't realize that there was a screen door.  I bumped into it and I just shook it off.  My mommy came to see if I was hurt and she said I had a little scratch on my nose. 
A cherished moment is the first time I saw my Mommy.   It was a nice sunny day at the park.  She looked like an angel in her white dress.  She picked me up and and told me I was sooo cute.
