A buddy dog provides support, companionship, structure, promotes trust and brings a sense of fun.
Research shows that children with disabilities can gain confidence and feel better thanks to a buddy dog. Children get used to taking care of and dealing with a dog in a playful way.
A buddy dog or an autism support dog is trained to support children with autism when they are outdoors. The dog wears a harness that the child can hold onto. This kind of support can change the child’s behaviour.
- Safety: there is less chance of the child just running away
- Freedom of movement: the whole family can go out together
- Positive influence: the child’s behaviour often changes
- Friendship: the child always has a friend nearby
The dog will also pick up on things it can do to break the behaviour patterns of a child with autism.
