Man's best friend is quickly becoming man's biggest comfort. Comfort dogs, or therapy dogs, are traveling the country to bring peace of mind to those affected by crises.
Natural disasters, hospitals, and fundraisers are just a few of the events comfort dogs attend. Acting as a welcome distraction, therapy dogs are known to lower heart rates and provide a friendly influence into an otherwise hectic situation.
A golden retriever, Jacob the Comfort dog (@JacobComfortDog), and a Boston Terrier named Chopper the Biker dog (@ChopperTheBikerDog) are two pups making a difference in people's lives.
Jacob most recently has helped the students in Florida after the school shooting in Parkland. He has been present at prayer vigil's and around the community to put smile's on these children' faces.
Who doesn't love dog kisses? Chopper spreads the love with his Chopper kisses to children and adults in need. He is especially active in the police community and with children's hospital's in San Diego. He rides his Harley into the hearts of everyone he meets!
Therapy dogs are meant to act as a stress reliever to victims of tragic events. They are specially trained to get along with children and other dogs. Therapy dogs work with people of all ages and capabilities to bring joy into their lives!
