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

Jack was such a big cat in everyway. He's only been with me for 3 years, had him since he was a kitten. I rescued him and his sister from the streets. He was like a child when he wanted to be picked up he would meow and stand on his hind legs and reach his front paws to me. And there he would sit. But a few days ago he started not being himself, and Last night he left. He will remain in my heart forever. He was not only my cat he was a family member, a companion and I loved him so much. GoodBye Jackie Boy AKA My Mans.
