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

He was a sweet lil guy, quite yet kind.

He just kept growing, not fat but long.

His heart stopped and now he's the biggest Guinea in heaven.

May the road be long for him

May the wind be at his back

May the god of Cavies shake his butt in ritual respect.

Let the roads before him be paved with carrots

Let the trees before him be made of brocolie

Let the rocks be made of seder wood

Let the grass be made of corn.

He died before Thanksgiving.

He left with my uncle Truemen.

He sailed to heaven on his chewie log

We will always miss you and remember you

My special little guy.
