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

Its me Puppy, im just a lovable older guy.
I have only been around this funny farm now known to me as home for a little over a year, but I am absolutely loving it here. There are so many other kinds of furry creatures out there that  I didnt know exsisted. But I have learnt to love them all ( even the chickens who scared me ALOT at first)  Dont tell the other big tough guys but I adore cats!!!!!  ( shhhht)
I moved here because my old owner was afraid to pass on and I didnt have a good home ( he is of ill health) It was surely a greater power that brought my new mommy to me.  I got medical attention ( I have bad legs and elbows )  I have pills that are helping me alot... and .. who knew.. I was overweight which didnt help my situation much.
I just know this is going to be where i spend the rest of my days, I have had 3 homes now and finally have found my forever home. ( mom tells me all the time that I am NEVER going anywhere, it makes me soooooo happy)
Some of my favorite things to do are.. Sleep, go for rides to camp ( I can swim!!! whoda thunk it???) and of course our monthly visits to my previous home( I still like to cuddle with Peter and talk with him, and he gets sooo happy to see me too, we have wonderful visits)
Thats all i have to say right now, Thanks for stopping by and reading about me.
