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

Comet is truly one of a kind. He is the greatest dog I have ever had. I got him from the Humane Society when he was about three months(we are unsure of exacty date when he was born). He came from a abused home. It took time for him to open up to people and animals around him but, after time he improved. He is worth all the time in the world. He is still timid, but opens up after a few encounters with the person. He is more comfortable with women. Prefers people over other animals. Prefers cats over other dogs.

He is very smart and will always remember the tunes to commercial (where you'll find a dog in it) and will run to the television screen to see it. Comet loves watching animals on TV and hockey. I have never seen a dog that can be so attentive to the screen for a long period of time.

He loves to herd cows and did some herding back in Ottawa.
He is loving, loyal and likes to have his "own" time once in a while.

I love him so much!
