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 brought velcro home as a bottle fed kitten who had lost his mom.Soon i had to find homes for all the cats..however Velcro returned to me as the owners had to find living arrangements for the winter..Oh how I loved that cat he followed me around and his favorite place was my bed. what a loving cat he was so sweet and special. well one day he hada cold and his nose was runni so i took him to the vet. they took some test and came back and said he was criticial and had feline lukemia and that he was suffering and would never recover the best would be to put him to sleep. i was devastated but i wanted him to not be in any pain,, so as they put him to sleep i cried for the life he had that came to a end so soon i looked in to his eyes and stroked him and just cried for him for the pain he felt for i felt that pain too.. my dear cat i know that i must say goodbye and go on.. you are no longer suffering and are in a better place.. you are not forgotten and you will never be replaced.. you have a place in my heart that misses you so very much.. you were a part of me and i ache when i think about you.. one thing a cats love is unconditional they love you back so much. to my loving velcro i love you forever and miss you much i am glad i had the time to have you in my life however short it was you brought me joy and i thank you for that
