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

What can I say....he's such a good dog.  Amazing temperment for a breed that's notrious for being 'yappy'.  He's never chewed on a single thing that he wasn't supposed to chew on - much to my surprise.  I can honestly say I have not one single complaint.  He came into my life at a difficult time, and has since given me back some of the joy I had lost.  He's what makes me look forward to going home every day.  And nobody - I mean NOBODY, will ever be THAT happy to see me when I get home!! :-)
He loves it when I share an apple with him or some cheese.  And his favorite toy is his little stuffed poodle toy (we like to call it his girlfriend "Fifi").  His favorite passtime is zipping around the backyard like lightening at 100 miles an hour and running figure 8's around the fruit trees!!!
