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, I'm Maddie and I'm a Shipoo which is a mix of a Shih-Tzu and a Poodle. I love my family! They're awesome. I especially like when Joanne (mommy) gives me some treats, like: apple, cheese, and peanut butter! YUMMY! I've met so many new friends and they are so nice to me! I love Jory's best friend, (who I call auntie) Hailey, she rocks! I hope to meet auntie Hailey's shipoo who's name is Twizzler also! I also love my sisters who I see every now and then when mommy takes me to see them at her friends' houses! I really love it when Bradley and Adina (daddy and my sister) cuddle up with me and rub my belly, they are sooooooo nice! Even though I'm only a puppy, I hope to have many more things to write here soon and I'll see all you animals later! Love, your little puppy friend, Maddie! :)
