Autism is a very complex condition and an Autism Service Dog can help a person with Autism in so many ways. Some Autism Service Dogs help disrupt behavior by making contact with their human partner by touch or by laying on their lap.These dogs can prevent or eliminate wandering, help obtain better sleep patterns, increase communication skills and help give people with autism a sense of security and stability to function in public settings.Due to an overwhelming demand for our Autism Service Dogs and our extremely long waiting list, we are not accepting new Autism Service Dog applications at this time. If you are local to our training facility, we recommend you look into our Owner Training Academy, where we currently do not have a waiting list. For a list of other schools that may meet your needs, please visit the Assistance Dogs International website.

Description of Services

ECAD's Canine Magic is a specialized program focused on providing Service Dogs to children with Autism. ECAD is one of the few accredited Service Dog providers which accepts children with Autism as young as two years old.These dogs assist a child with Autism in areas of social, emotional, and cognitive development, but the dog's primary duty is to increase the child's physical safety by "anchoring". Anchoring is a method in which the dog wears a harness that is attached to the child's belt. The child also holds the harness and is taught to walk with the dog, but a third party facilitator (usually a parent or teacher) holds a second leash attached to the dog's collar. The parent can then give the dog a command to "stay" if the child becomes distracted, frustrated, or tries to bolt away, enabling the child to function well in situations that were previously impossible to handle.

Summary

Good Dog! was founded by a family with an autistic son who experienced a miraculous transformation after getting a service dog. We've formed a nationwide team of professionals with a shared love for the human-canine bond and passion to empower those dealing with disabilities.

Description of Services

Service dogs are specially trained for families of children* with autism, and related diagnoses, such as but not limited to Down Syndrome, Fragile X, Apraxia, and ADHD. Good Dogs are trained to perform specific tasks to mitigate these disabilities. Examples of tasks include applying pressure, receiving pressure, interrupting or redirecting behavior, providing focus and grounding, and creating a social and communicative bridge. All service dogs are placed as teams of three that include the dog, child, and a parent/caregiver who lives with the child and serves as the primary dog handler.*The term “child” refers to a person with a disability of any age who is not going to be handling the dog independently and/or who may be able to handle the dog independently in the future.  We do not have an age limit for our service dog recipients paired with an adult handler.
