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

Lucy is a cuddly bundle of love. She never has a mean thought toward anything, even squirrels continue to munch peanuts with Lucy standing beside them. She is even tolerant of her housemate Miss Penny who is constantly steeling from her and swearing at her. Miss Lucy just turns the other cheek. Her best friend is her protector and housemate Snoopy who likes to take long walks with her on the trails and shares her bed with Lucy when she has a bad dream.
