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 would love to sleep on my owner's couch but I have already destroyed 3 of them.  I am now sleeping on my very own couch that my owner made for me. 
I hate squirrels and wild turkey's that come to eat at the bird feeder. 
I have a squeaky toy that I like to carry around but my favourite is a big huge beef bone.  YUMMY!!!
I really like to sleep at my owner's feet but she says I am too heavy to do that!
I try not to drool but I can't help it.  It just happens.  I try to swing it and keep it cleaned up but sometimes I just have to shake it off and it goes everywhere.  SORRY, I didn't mean to slime you!  OH I AM SO EMBARRASSED!!
My sadist time was when my sister died of cancer.  That was last year in July.  I really missed her and no matter what my owner did I still felt sad.  Now I have a new playmate and she is OK but still not my sister.  This one pee's in the house and I get to tattle tale on her to my owner.  I sure let them know when she is doing something she shouldn't be.
I love being with my owner.  I wish I could be with her all the time.  I am a very laid back big puppy and just love to be snuggled and talked to.  Massage me and I will be so happy!!
