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

Ollie is a non-stop whining teddy bear. When she wakes me up, she grunts, rubs against me and sneezes all over me. She is very special. : ) We used to feed her Kibble's N' Bits until we found out they were VERY bad for doggies. She used to only eat the orange sticks and the white bits and leave her sister, Megg, the crunchy bits. Ollie like to display her tummy into the sun. Whenever she's outside, she lays on the porch, legs spread wide and sleeps peacefully. When she wants a tummy rub she'll display her chest high up for a scratch and will pester you until she is satisfied. Everybody thinks Ollie is a boy because of her cute face and her boy-ish personality, but we try to make Ollie as girly as possible by buying pink sweaters, collars, ect. Dad makes fun of her big nose. Mom makes fun of her noises. Amanda's her original mommy. I'm her Aunt. Ollie LOVES walks, car rides, trips to Grandma's house and cheese. Ollie is a mommy even though she has never reproduced. She took care of my kitty, Cathy, when she was still new to the family by cleaning her and walking by her side and showing her around. She loves children! I was babysitting this little boy named Raphie and she did about the same thing to him too! Also, whenever we take the dogs camping she HAS to know where everyone is and she WILL make a fuss if you leave without her permission. Ollie will defend her rights as a woman and the part of pack if she needs to. You should hear her howl when you leave her alone in the house with Megg. It's like they're in a duet! She and Megg are VERY close. They love each other very much and sometimes play fight. I don't think they have ever been seperated. Ollie is very immature compared to Megg. I LOVE YOU OLLIE!! <33
