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

Nikita was a mama's girl. That's the best way to describe her. Wherever my mom went skinny girl went. we called her skinny all the time it just suited her, or girl. She was so loving and was completely in love with our other chihuahua poncho. Once chiko was brought into the family she stared caring for him like she was his mother. I miss Nikita so much. She loved camping and eating cheese. We all miss you Nikita. Poncho was never the same since you passed and now you two are finally together again. I love and miss you skinny girl.
