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 love to cuddle with my mom, dad and Cody and let out a big sigh or growl if I have to be moved from my comfy spot.
If you are looking for me, be sure to look under any blanket.  I love anything that squeaks and I can destroy it in the matter of minutes.  My mom has a great time picking up green colored fuzzies all over the house!!
I am a real greeter and love to bark to let people know I am there, but I am really friendly and continuously wag my tail.
I love going for car rides, just ask mom how excited I get when the words "car ride" are mentioned but If I am sitting in the driver's seat, don't try to take me from there, I get shotgun!
Mom has taught me lots of tricks 'cept I am lazy when it comes to shake a paw. I just stick out my paw and mom has to grab it and shake it!
I love to play with my cousin Sam (golden retriever) and my neighbor Odie.  Sam is so big but I am faster than him and love to do rolls on the carpet - right underneath him!!
Dislikes:
Bathtime, I don't like hearing the word "Bath" I run and hide
Getting my nails trimmed at the groomers, they are still working with me to make me feel more comfortable. I had a bad experience once and now I am scared.
My family treats me like one of the family and I am so lucky to have them as my owners.  They give me lots of love, hugs and kisses and an abundance of treats. I am still a pup, so I do sometimes get in trouble.
