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 was lucky to have Hans and Gordon find me at the SPCA in Calgary. It was a wonderful Christmas present for me to find such a nice family with a big house in the mountains! Hans takes me fishing and lets me swim in the lakes. Maggie is wonderful, she feeds me my breakfast at 6am and lets me sleep on the couch with her downstairs. I love it when Gordon and Becky come and visit from Calgary, they feed me from the table! I also like swimming and fetching the "Kong", as long as John dosen't put it in the trees!
