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

My
name says it all.
Belle
is a dog that was abused in her younger days. She was found tied to
a tree in the woods. She had gone without food and water for over a
week.
She was found by people who followed her cries in the woods. It took
long to find her because as she would hear people approaching, she would
wag her tail and stop crying. She was brought to an animal shelter where
my mother found her.

After seeing that sweet face, my mother decided to bring her home to
help her back to health.
Ever
since she came home, she's remained with us. At this point, it would
be impossible to find her another home. She's part of the family! She's
turned out to be a great dog but she still has a fear of not being fed.
When you give her food, move out of the way.
