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 am Tally!! I think the best day of my life was when my human Michael took me away from the humans who had me. It had been my third home in my short life and now Michael would be my fourth home...I really hope I stay here hes seems to like me a lot.. I love to sleep on Michael's bed, although he does move around a lot while a sleep so I try and pin his legs or arms down so he can't move..hehehe  I love staying on the bed when michael gets up...I only move because I need to go out and water a veery nice tree stump.   We live close to the sea and I love gong for long walks on the beach chasing all the birds but I don't go close to Swans, I keep well away because they could hurt me. when I am on the park behind the beach I run and run chasing all the wagtails and seagulls, and sometimes playing with other dogs if they let me, I have been known to take there ball and then they chase me to get it back.....I am deaf a lot of the time  to Michael, and don't come back when he calls me??  Michael then does not talk to me for a while although I get my treat when I get home.  I love to torment michael by nipping his jeans when he is on the computer, he gets a little frustrated trying to work out what i want to do!!  most of the time i am just distracting him, Although i do love seat on him while i go to sleep chasing rabbits in the nice long grass...my little legs go ten to the dozen.....
