My friend's daughter is autistic and I've been planning on buying her a dog for her birthday a few days from now. Would you happen to know if having a pet dog would alleviate her symptoms? How can pet therapy help autistic children?

Having a pet will be a great structure to help improve your child's communication and social skills. You will notice that your child will be more playful and happier. Dog indeed is a man's best friend. You can also ask advice from your doctor since there are different kinds of animal therapy like: swimming with dolphin and horse back riding.

That’s a great idea. You could also ask a teacher and a vet about this. Do the research so you get the right disposition in the dog you choose. Pets are wonderful therapy.

It would be a good idea to check with some therapy dog programs, too. A friend of mine has an autistic son who also has  pretty severe seizure disorder, and he has a therapy Pitbull who goes everywhere with him. he's a super dedicated dog with a big, goofy grin.He's been a lifesaver for their family.

This is true. It is a proven fact that animal therapy can alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stressful situations. For sure, the kid will love having a pet.
