Teaching comfort and love through the eyes of a dog

What we do

Teach and provide comfort through an evidenced-based curriculum

Teach and facilitate with dogs

We learn by example, and there is no better example of how to best comfort others than with dog – who are always accepting.

A Golden Opportunity

When you sponsor a golden retriever, you have a direct part in providing comfort to a child that needs extra love. Your sponsored golden will send you weekly updates (with the help of the handler of course) of how they helped in the community.
