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

This is one crazy dog! Her nickname that everyone actually calls her by now is "beans" which was originally Jumping Bean because she never sits still! She is all over the place all the time and never quits. She is entertaining to say the least and never seems to amaze us with the odd things she does. Her likes are Rudy, Nicky and Sasha [our other dogs], treats, hidding under blankets, pillows, towels, in laundry baskets, in peoples sweaters, following her mommy around the house like a shadow, and pretending to be a doberman and guarding the house. Her dislikes are strangers, people touching her mommy, the cold, the outdoors and pop cause she had to be nosy  and try and drink it then gave us a dirty look like we forced her to drink this nasty stuff lol. Overall she is very entertaining and can be sweet when she isn't being sneaky like a little racoon.
