Helping children aged 3 to 12 years of age, Autism Assistance Dog Guides provide safety, companionship and unconditional love. These Dog Guides provide a calming relief for children in high anxiety situations and reduce the stress commonly experienced in public places.
The bond that develops between the Dog Guide and child allows for increased social interaction for the family and the child.
