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

Words cannot express the love and appreciation we have for you.  You fought so gallantly to stay with your family, and what a brave, stoic little boy you have been over the years.


You were the sweetest and most gentle of all dogs, your loss is so great and our hearts are broken.  I will miss everything about you, your unique ways and the love noises you made when we stroked you.  The last night I spent with you, just laying next to you, stroking your beautiful head will always flood my heart with such sweet sorrow.  You have taught us so much, especially Daddy, who was your favorite person.  He never left your side and we did everything we could to make your last days comfortable.


Thank you for all the joy you bought to our lives, you were a wonderful gift, and we will miss your beautiful soul.   Oh, those sweet sweet brown eyes of yours, I wish I could see them one last time.  Please wait for us.  Until then enjoy being painfree and run with the birds.


 


Your broken hearted family
