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

Cephus was one of the most inteligent well behaved dogs I have ever met. He was Loyal, kind and knew how to win your heart! Cephus was a American Stafordshire Terrier. Cephuse is missed so terribly much words just can't possibly discribe! Wish we could have him back even for just 1 more day! But not if it ment suffering. Cephus has tumors that developed in his lungs and took him over. He was brave and gental to the very end! We love you dearly and can't hardly wait to hold you in our arms again!
