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 name is Al-e-oop but I am also known around the park as 'the squirrel hunter'. I love to spend time with people and other animals and my biggest pet peeve is to be left alone. I share a house a large calico cat named nosy and we get along most of the time except when she binges on my food. My favorite pasttime, other than chasing squirrels is snuggling with whoever is around. I have a wide repitoire of tricks including giving high fives. Generally I'm pretty quiet and laid back. I spend most of my free time hiding bones, chewing on a variety of toys, and begging for scraps. I'm not a picky eater and I will generally try anything once.
