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

Sapphire is so friendly he would'nt scratch me or any body.Whenever he wanted to come inside or in a room the would scratch at the door untill we opened the door.He always waited his turn to eat even when the other animals in the house stole his dinner.I loved it how he purred when I came home from school I picked him up and was e so happy,Sapphire began to suck on my hand,and when he did I knew that he was at his happiest.You were so young when you died,when I realized that you you hurt I got Mum and rushed down to the vets, the vets said it's not looking good,a big dog attaked your cat and riped his bone out completly we're going to have to put him down, all I remenber is bursting out in tears,I'm so sorry Sapphire I know that you knew what was going on at the vets,you did'nt want me and my mum to be sad,so you lay there trying to be comfortable.I remember those big blue eyes looking at me for the last time,I hope we'll meet again.
Goodbye
Love your family.
