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

I am just a ball of energy, and is still learning to contain my excitement when I see other dogs.  Weekend is the best since my mommy and daddy takes me to the dog park where I can run with other doggies and make new friends.  I am also a big foodie and try to find ways to steal food now and then even though I know I will get a good scolding from mommy. 
I was already full-grown when my parents brought me home.  It was tough at first since mommy set up so many rules and boundaries.  I wasn't allow to jump on the kitchen counter to look for food or stick my noise on the dinner table to check out what they were eating.  Worst of all, I am not allowed on the bed or sofa because I would take up all the space.  Anyways, I learned that they love me very much and I feel the same way for them.  I just don't like to be left alone at home, so I pull out my leash from the closet and chew on it to tell them that I want to be out with them instead of left at home for a long time.
My favourite lounging spot would be by the doorway where I can feel some breeze coming through the doorcrack and hear my neighbor doggies walk by.  I don't have a favourite toy since I chew up all the toys my parents bought me, after been given to me for 30 minutes.  Therefore, I only have chewed up toys lying around.   Maybe they should just give me more bones and/or rawhides.  Yummy... 
P.S.  Mommy sometimes calls me "big goof."  I don't think I look like Goofie.
