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

Here's a little bit about me.
My grandma named me Oreo because I have black and tan fur with a white patch in the middle. I like my name because it's sweet and suits me to a t!
I like to:

spend time with mommy and daddy

play fetch with mommy and daddy

eat broccoli

get tummy rubs

scare my daddy by pouncing on his chest to lick his face

go for walks because I get to meet other dogs and people

sleep near my parents because they are so very warm

chew on my bully stick

burrow into a blanket or one of mommy's comfy robes

climb up on chairs so I can see if there's food for me

play hide and seek under the couch

run around the living room until I get thirsty or tired
I don't like to:

take baths

wipe my paws and bum

be away from my mommy and daddy

eat my kibble if I can get something better

miss out on going out

go to the vet because the visits could hurt

walk in rain

sleep until my bed is just right

sit or lie down on cold surfaces

eat my kibble if there's something better to eat
My favourite toy is my curly whirly lamb with a low purring sound.
My favourite spot in the whole world is on my mommy or daddy's lap while they sit and watch tv.
