These activities have included, but aren’t limited to, visits to hospitals (VA / Children’s and others, special needs centers, schools, nursing homes, and airports (Patriot Guard). Our objective is to form a support system of caring handlers who are willing to share their special dogs to bring unconditional love and smiles to people, young and old alike.

Therapy dogs can be any breed. They must be friendly, confident, gentle and at ease in most situations. They should enjoy being petted by people, especially children and the elderly. The dog’s main job is offering comfort, affection and encouragement. It’s a tough job, but they are more than willing to do it.
