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 love to spend
my time outdoors, especially when it is cold and there is lots of snow.

I also like to swim (it's just to get in the pool that is sometimes problematic!).

I enjoy going
out for walks and car rides.
At night, there is no better place to sleep in than my owners' bed!
My owners' call me 'Gros Toutou' as I am such a wonderful dog.
I love to play
with people, kids especially as well as my buddy-dog Nanouk.
My Pet Peeve:
having my claws 'done'!

My best friend is Nanouk
(who happens to be my
'aunt').
She's the 'dominating' one. I spend all my time with her (often annoying
her) and I just could not live without her!
