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

Our family loved Zeus, he was an incredible dog.  He made everyone happy and was always a true friend right up until the end.  Zeus made all of us smile, he had a huge head and a great big heart.


I've had dogs all my life, but I've never had a dog like this....I truly, believe he was a once in a life time friend.  The Rottweiler is understated, it's unfortunate that most people don't take the time to get to know this breed...they are strong and compassionate, they love their families and would do anything for them.  Our Zeus, was a gentle soul, he would never have hurt anyone.  Everyone he came into contact with, he greeted with so much excitement, he wanted everyone to be his friend.


We are going to miss our Zeus for a very long time and I know we will never forget him.
