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. My name is Paws. I'm an eight week old black lab. I'm all black with a little bit of white on my paws, that's how I got my name! I'm really tiny cuz I was the runt, but I sure am smart! I'm almost completely house trained and I know to come when I'm called (that's right, I know my name and I know 'come') And did I mention that I'm only eight weeks old?! I didn't get to meet my big sister Peaches, but I know that she's watching me right now. It's now my job to take care of the children! And they love me! Hugs and Kisses to All!
