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

My dearest friend, I've lost you and blame myself everyday that goes by, how i should have done something to prevent you from running away, that day will stay with me forever.  You were kind and the most loving dog, sweet and so affectionate, I miss looking into those eyes and feeling the love you had for me, I miss our mornings together, were you would sit beside me on the couch watching T.V...I miss seeing you play with Balou and Charlotte.  When I think that many times I would get frustrated because you followed me around constantly I would gladely relive those moments than feeling this lonely.The day we brought you home from the shelter I knew you were special. You brought to this family the most precious gift, the gift of love. We will never forget you and thank you for all the love and trust you gave us.
