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

coco was a rescue. He was a very intelligent dog. I had two cats who he protected. They both shared their food bowls. He had very keen hearing, with slightest sound he was at the door guarding his house. He had such an appepite he liked everything.

Terriers are diggers, I found it funny when I sat on my sofa I felt something hidden in the sofa, I found his milkbones very deep in the sofa where he knew it was. when i looked into his big brown eyes i knew he had a soul. he was so mysterious, i will always love him. i hope he is a good boy in heaven and he is digging into the dirt ground to bury his treats. RIP my sweet love. mommy lydia
