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

Hi, thank you for visiting my web page! I am so happy to finally have one! As far as some of my likes...well, I LOVE my Mommy...she is the best Mommy in the world. When she isn't home, all I do is sit around and whine, or I will spend most of my time in her bed...with my head on her pillow. I love to sprall out on the floor in front of the fireplace and chew my favorite bone. My Mommy gives me tennis balls too...but I usually destroy them within 10 minutes, so she only gives them to me on special occassions. There is nothing I dislike...I eat anything handed to me, I love my partner in crime (Picasso, a Maine Coon cat). My entire world is awesome, no complaints from me! The only issue I have is my health...I have what is called "Wobbler's Syndrome" and sometimes endure a lot of pain in my neck & spine...but Mommy takes care of that too with special medication from my doctor.
Well, thanks for stopping by...please forward my page to all your family & friends!
