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

Unfortunately my beautiful boy lost a battle with a creature here in the tropics that bites. We found him and got him to the vet but there was nothing that could be done for him. He was made comfortable and died peacefully in his sleep. You were such a special friend who  progressed from a very scared shy kitten to the king ruling the roost. You didnt even mind visitors anymore. I will miss you in my lap, your morning hellos and your beautiful smiling face. Thank you for the trust,affection and the unconditional love you gave me. You were someone special who will remain in my heart forever. I love and miss you beautiful. xxx
