Smart Pup for Clyde (72217)

Smart Pup for Clyde (72217)

Our beautiful boy Clyde. To know him is to love him. Clydey is an absolute champion little kid. He loves The Wiggles, fruit salad, dressing up, animals, his Dad, brother and sister. But most of all he loves his mum.

Clydey has always been a quirky character. He wins people over with his super cute dimply smile and straight up honesty. If you annoy Clyde, he will tell you to ‘go to work’!
Unfortunately as Clyde was growing we realised he wasn’t developing like other kids his age. Clyde struggles to communicate and doesn’t like to play with other children. He has a very rigid idea of the way things should be and he doesn’t cope well in many day to day situations.
After some testing earlier this year, Clyde has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (level 3), anxiety, sensory issues, speech delay and developmental delay.
Since his diagnosis we have noticed even more challenging behaviours. Basically every day is a struggle for Clyde. Things like picking his brother and sister up from school or going to the shops can cause Clyde real angst.
Clyde finds it difficult being at daycare and it has been recommended that Clyde attend an autism specific school.
But as Clydes parents we are determined to help him as much as possible, and give him the absolute best start in life.
Smart Pups Assistance Dogs are task specific assistance dogs trained to improve the quality of life for children with autism and seizure related syndromes.
Smart pups are trained to quickly find their child using their sense of smell. In an emergency situation where the child has run away or wandered off, this skill can be life saving.
Smart pups are also trained in behaviour disruption (for repetitive or destructive behaviours). They provide positive social interactions and a calming presence.
We have thoroughly researched Smart Pups, and heard so many success stories.
We truly believe that a Smart Pup will be such a positive influence on Clyde. We are sure that with a Smart Pup around, Clydes quality of life will drastically improve.
These amazing, highly trained dogs are not cheap. $20,000 is the amount we have to contribute to begin the process of training up a Smart Pup for Clyde.
We are hoping that with some community assistance we will reach this goal sooner rather than later.
Any contribution would be greatly appreciated.
