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

Morris’ likes are eating, being around people, and getting rubbed. His dislikes are petting him wrong or he’ll let you know – by pawing at you or nibbling and whatever he can get ahild of to make you stop. His favorite play things would have to be real geckos and chasing them ‘til they lose their tales. His pet peeves consist of getting litter between his paws that he can’t get out and bothering him when he wants to be left alone. His favorite spot is the mat on the porch of the house – and, when he’s inside it’s his bed. His most embarrassing moment is when a girl cat had to protect him. Last but not least is the cherished memory – which would be two: (1) the day he came home 12 years ago and we cuddled and played all day long; (2) as well as every Christmas he would have an ornament to put up – with my help of course and playing in the wrapping paper.
