What We Do

Therapy Dogs

In extremely stressful situations, time spent with dogs has been proven to have immense advantages by improving psychological well-being as well as delivering a sense of calm and comfort. These therapy dog teams assist the community overcoming disasters by providing comfort during times of extreme loss, depression and anxiety.

Disaster Response

Colorado comfort Canine handlers, which are all Critical Incident Stress Management trained, take their teams to visit injured victims and family members, first responders, relief workers and members of the community affected by the pressure, pain and lose attributed to the disaster event.

Training Resources

Human-canine teams must be certified Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) teams in good standing. Colorado Comfort Canine handlers must also complete Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) training. Please contact us for more information on the next available CISM training.

Colorado Comfort Canines is a non-profit organization. Though we happily accept donations, we do not charge communities for our services.

This is up to the community. If there are lodgings readily available, and the community is able to offer this to Colorado Comfort Canines, we would be honored to stay in them. If not, we will find our own lodgings. The community is not responsible for finding Colorado Comfort Canines lodging.

We are always looking for new members and new therapy dog teams. We have teams from all over the United States. To find out more information, please contact:
