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

Caramel was my first pet. He was a adorable, trusting hamster. He started getting fat one day, and my sister, (thats a vet) said he had a tumor, and that he only hd a few days left to live. He lived a week, so I thought he was going to live longer. One night, my friend asked me to sleep over. My mom picked me up early the next day, and made me eat right away. Then I said "I'm going to cheak on Caramel." My mom stoped me and she said "I think Caramel's dead. He's mnot moving." I started poking him, but he wouldin't wake up. I droped on my knees and started crying. I got a box, put some shavings and food and them him in it. My brother burried him in my back yard. I still miss him. He was a good pet. I love him, and miss him.
