Comfort Dogs offer non-judgemental companionship that can help during tough times. Comfort dogs can help boost a person’s mood and decrease stress. The animal’s presence can enable a reprieve from negative or sad thoughts a person may have and even sitting in silence near a dog is known to bring a sense of peace and calm. Our furry friends can’t help but bring smiles to the faces around them!
If you would like to have one of our comfort dogs visit your facility, please send us a message through our contact page.
A facility dog is a dog that, directed by qualified staff within a designated facility, utilizes its special skills and training in animal-assisted interventions to help providers achieve specific treatment or program goals.
Facility Dogs work in churches, assisted living/nursing facilities, hotels, educational institutions, rehabilitation centers, funeral homes, retirement homes, police and fire departments, court house and child advocacy centers and other public sector organizations in need of a facility dog.
Dogs selected to become facility dogs are highly motivated by contact with people, affectionate, gregarious, of moderate-to-low energy and drive, and calm and quiet indoors and are trained as service dogs.
If you would like to request a facility dog for your organization, please send us a message through our contact page.
