Resident comfort dogs receive the same training as our service dogs and are permanently placed with schools, hospitals, court systems, police departments, domestic violence shelters, teen crisis centers, and other place-based organizations. Resident comfort dogs are trained to perform specific tasks, to interact with people of all ages, and to integrate in different environments. Permanent placement includes full training for both dogs and handlers along with ongoing support, coaching, and training. Resident comfort dogs live in the homes of their assigned handlers and daily serve in the community in which they are placed. In times of disaster, our dogs are available to bring comfort to those affected, including to the volunteers and first responders who serve during the disasters. In 2017, our comfort dogs went to Las Vegas after the Route 91 Harvest music festival shooting and have also supported many victims affected by local wildfires in southern California.
