A comfort dog also is known as a therapy dog, is a dog that might be trained to provide affection and comfort to people. Whether it is in a hospital setting or a police station. These dogs are trained to ease the pain and stress of a situation. A lot of times, people dealing with anxiety, and mental disorders can benefit from having dogs like Lacey around.
