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

Hi I'm Jersey - a 5 month old chocolate lab puppy. I love my new home and I am very spoiled. Puppy eyes really do work - I convinced my mommy to buy a king size bed so I will be able to sleep on it with her no matter how big I get!
My favorite toy is my stuffed squeaky donkey ... it's actually my second one because I chewed my first one in half!
I have been sad lately because my older step-sister Kailey died last week and it's lonely without her to play with. My mom has been sad too - but she found a neat dog park where I can play with lots of other dogs.
There is also a cat at home but she's no fun to play with! She hits me on the head with her paws, luckily she has no claws.
Hope you like my pic.
