Tribute Comfort Dogs was founded by a military family to support and encourage all those who served and their families.
Our dogs lift the spirits of service members and veterans while comforting their families as they deal with the challenges of military and civilian life.
We know first hand, social connectedness is vital to veterans’ and military families’ mental and emotional well-being, especially when transitioning back to civilian life.
Our goals with visits from our Comfort Dog teams are to bring comfort and joy that our K9s give unconditionally. Handled by those who truly understand the sacrifices to entire family makes.
What is a Comfort Dog?
A Comfort Dog is a newer subset of a Therapy Dog. It's a working dog that, as the name implies, gives comfort to those facing life's challenges and enriches lives through the human-animal bond*.
Comfort Dogs are not Service Dogs or Emotional Support Animals. Comfort Dogs lift spirits, provides affection or comfort to people other than their owner/handler.
Whereas both Service Dogs and Emotional Support Animals provide service or support for their owner/handler.
*The Human-Animal Bond is a mutually beneficial and dynamic relationship between people and animals that positively influences the health and well-being of both.
