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

An accomplished rodent chaser, Fred patrols the woods daily. When asked we are fond of telling people that he is a 'Laurentian Squirrel Hound' as befits his noble carriage and devotion to policing the local tree-dwellers. At home his breed is referred to as 'The Snouty' (and Fred as 'King Snouty') for his habit of having his in everything that it doesn't belong in : ) One day we'd like to breed Fred with another dachshund-terrier cross as he is such a wonderful friend and companion.
