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 there,
  My name is Kiara and I am a Siberian Husky, this is my site! I am a certified therapy dog with St John's Ambulance, I get to visit people in the hospital and make them feel better.  I like everybody, but I can get in moods where I seem quite stand offish, my mom says I am rude and stuck up, I guess I can be a little full of myself =) 
  I also compete in agility with the AAC, I have just started though, and I am not sure if I really like the audience.  I also go to lots of obedience classes because my mom is an apprentice trainer.  I love tracking, pulling and fishing things out of the bottom of my kiddie pool.  Snow is great....duh!! Sleeping is also good, but only after a few hours of excercise!
  My pet peeves are dogs that don't want to play and cats that think they can take me out!! Like my cat....oliver!!! He thinks he is sooo tough!!!
 Oh ya!! I also work at a dog daycare, well my mom is the one who gets the cheques, but I do all the work! It is my job to make sure that all the dogs are tired at the end of the day, so I have to play and play and play...its a hard job!
The picture above is me....doing the spread jump at an agility practise! Aren't I great!
         ciao!
