4 Paws for Ability Autism Assistance Dog Program

One organization in particular, known as the 4 Paws for Ability Autism Assistance Dog Program, strives to train quality service dogs in a wide range of tasks and assist children with autism by meeting their unique needs. In addition, they aim to create reliability and consistency in the autistic child’s life by having the dogs go everywhere that they go, “even within places of public accommodation, and the educational system bringing along with them: consistency, stability, and calm reassurance that the feelings of anxiety or fear are not needed because the trusted buddy is by their side” wrote 4 Paws on their website.
