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

Lace was my babygirl. She loved chasing balled up pieces of paper and playing blankiet monster. She would always come running to me if I made a purring sound, that was her call. She loved stealing crumbs off of plates, or licking the last tiny bit of milk from a bowl. She especially loved little bits of cheese. She was shy, and went to hide if anyone came to the house, except near the end of her days. Only my husband and son and myself ever saw her, but after almost twenty years, other family members finally got to see her. She loved to be held and cuddled by me, and tried to climb inside my skin it seemed. She was accepting of our dogs, but did not like the other cats much. She tolerated them to some degree. The last couple weeks of her life, she went downhill pretty quickly. She seemed fine and then suddenly she wouldn't eat anything except a tiny amount of cheese. She only licked the gravy from her food, and then wouldn't even have that. I spent her last day with us holding her in my arms and speaking softly to her. I knew she was going to leave us that day, and I didn't want her to be alone. She went to meet her dog brothers at Rainbow Bridge on March 27, 2014. I hope she knew how much we all loved her. She was 19 years old, she lived a long life, and she will be missed very much. RIP baby Lace. You are loved.
