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

I love to play, especially with my pal Maggie who lives upstairs. Not a day can go by without us seeing each other. I certainly do enjoy my evening play at the park with my other friends. I love to sleep on my mom and dad's couch, and sometimes I get caught. They don't like me doing that. I just find it very comfortable, that's all. And I really really love bath time. Mom's baths are the best, especially when she isn't expecting me. The bubbles are fun to play around in, and I really like to stick my nose down the drain. Mom and dad really love me, I can tell. They hug and kiss me all time. And I'm confused...is my name Cassee, or Pretty Girl? I think I'm going to something called "school" soon. Mom and Dad say that I don't listen very well sometimes. Oh well, I guess I'll get to play some more!!
