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

I'm a very hyper little guy and I'm always in trouble.  I like to get on the dining table when Dad leaves his chair out.  I like to chase the cats through the house.  Gizmo runs and jumps on top of Dad's desk, but Bijou will play with me.  I like to chew up ball point pens.  My favorite thing of all is to chew up Mom's shoes!  I like to ride in the car with Mom when she goes through the drive-thru at the bank or the pharmacy because they always give me treats, which I take to the back seat of the car and bury under the floor mat.  I like crawling under the covers and sleeping with Mom.  I love to go to Grandma's house and play with my cousins Sarah and Brad!
