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

Hi my name is Fredrica,i'm an eight year old Golden Retriever who lives with her mum and dad in Wales United Kingdom.We also have a thirteen month old Bullmastiff called Naiomi who lives with us. My favourite pastime is swimming and going on long walks.I'm lucky cos we live quite close to the sea so i'm able to indulge in swimming quite often.Naiomi doesn't like the water very much she will paddle up to her knees but that's about it (i thought bullmastiff's were tough ....lol).I have a friend called Pepsi who is a seven year old staffordshire bull terrier cross whippet who likes to swim with me.we play retrieve the stick from the water.i usually win cos i swim better ...but occasionally i let her win !!!!cos i'm a nice dog !!!!!!
