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

Sweet, cuddly, playful, loyal, protective and obedient to loved ones. Unsure of strangers, dislikes children but will put up with them, gets bossed around by the cat and is learning to respect horses. Only barks when there's a reason, it usually comes out as more of a grunt. Not a destructive bone in his body and having never been given people food even a forgotten plate of pizza crust left on the floor overnight is left untouched. My "son", best friend, exercise partner and guardian.
