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

My best friend left me because her heart wasn't strong enough. Each and every single day I laugh and cry thinking about you Pebbles. You came into my life as a 6 week old little puppy that played with me at the window at PJ's petstore. On February 24, 2003 your little heart gave out and I just couldn't bear to have you suffering any more. I remember the look you gave me, just before you went to sleep, it's was the look that you said Mommy I'm okay I love you. You gave me a kiss with what little energy you had left and just like that you passed away. I cried all night, I wanted you back I wanted my little baby back and I still sleep with your blanket and collar on my bed. I love you and know that you brought so much love and joy to my life. You were my life, until we meet again my sweet angel, sleep now and know that the pain is gone.


Forever your mommy


Betty
