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

Drake (or Drakey as I called him) was the most loving lizard you could ever hope for. Most people don't think of lizards as cuddly, but if you could have seen him when he cuddled into my neck to go to sleep when I held him in the evenings.

He would tilt his head when you talked to him, as if he knew what you were saying. He had a zest for life... and for hunting any bug that moved!

I will miss you Drakey!

Drake died suddenly of what the vet suspected was some kind of aneurysm.
