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

Dominic was truly man's best friend. He was adopted into a loving family in 1998. His best friend Jeff adored him. Dominic was a good boy, loved going to the Farmer's Market to be showed off, and enjoyed sticking his head out the window during car rides. One time when Jeff had to pick up exctra shifts at work and couldn't take him on his car rides, when Jeff finally got home, he escaped from the back yard, jumped through the window of the car and sat in the front seat -ready to go!!! He left us unexpectedly and did not suffer. We are grateful he did not endure pain at the end. Rest in peace Dominic...
