What is a Companion Dog?

A Companion Dog is a calm, well-behaved and obedient therapy dog that facilitates therapeutic healing while working to help rehabilitate the mind, body and soul.  Companion Dogs can benefit anyone, but bring an added benefit to At-Risk Children & Young Adults, Abused or Homeless children, Seniors (living in residential facilities), or a client suffering from Chronic Illness or living in hospice care.  If your Facility has ever imagined the joy, unconditional love and constant companionship of a trained, full-time therapy dog - look no further! 

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to place Companion Dogs at this time.
