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

to nala

she was my best friend when i get sad she would always be there to comfort me.

my husband first found nala she was a kitten and i spoiled her rotten,she would eat

temptation treats and when i got nala differant treats she would turn her head

and when i gave her the temptation treats she would jump up on a table and eat them.

nala was raised with candy another cat that i found and when nala died candy eas just

lost without her playmate.but i knew i still had a lot of love to give other cats so now i

have four was in dec of 2002 my mom told me nala wasn't eating i didn't think

anythink of it until i came back from my trip and i saw that nala had lost from a 20 pound cat to a two pound cat when i took her to the vet he said thet she had tyroid disease she couldn't even hold her head up so the only thing i could do was to let her go so i had the doctor put her to sleep,which was the hardest thing i could ever do but i knew i had to because she was suffering too much.

nala is still in my heart everday .

i love you nala
