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 had Charmin for 19 years, since I was four years old. I am now 22. She was a wonderful cat that shared growing up with me. I will never forget how loud she purred, how she would sleep with me and take up the whole bed, how soft her furr was and how good she smelled. I will never forget the way she always greeted me at the door and curled up next to me on the couch on my blanket when I watched TV. She always knew how to make me feel better. She would crawl into my lap and look up at me and purr while wagging her tail. She was always so full of energy, always running around right up until the end. I love you baby girl, with all my heart and will miss you so much!
