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

Phantom was a wonderful cat that had a personality that I have rarely seen in a cat. She was my best friend and she had a unique meow that sounded like a squeak at times. This squeak was what brought her the nickname of "Squeaker". She used to play "hockey" with little tinfoil balls and she would also fetch them when thrown, much like a dog. She used to lay on me or beside me whenever I was sitting on the couch and would purr away without a care in the world. She was the friendliest cat anyone could ever meet and she will be sadly missed by her furry brothers and sisters and also her human friends. It is with great sadness that I say goodbye to a special friend with the hopes of one day being able to say hello once again.

Goodbye Phantom, love daddy.
