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

My Name is Roxy.  I am a super active dog.  I'll play with 3 toys at once and you still won't be able to catch me.
I love being with my people!! I also love other animals, big or small I want to play with everyone that I meet.   I especially like big dogs 10 times my size, like the neighbors Rotti.  My favorite outdoors activity is running, inside the house I like to bury my greenies all over the place.
My dislikes include, kids that can't play nice, being left behind, and having my nails cut.
My favorite toy is my rubber squeaky football.
My best doggie friend is Kokanee, she is a Cataoula Hound X.  Me and Kokanee can play for hours.
