The Dogter Will See You Now

Local therapy dog brings smiles to future dentists. A proud owner reports… 

Certified last year thru Comfort Caring Canines, Ernie (a corgi mix) comes to work with me once a week at the VA to visit with homeless veterans. This April, he had his first therapy event outside of the VA, a de-stress event for Penn Dental students sponsored by Counseling & Psychological Services.

It was so cute and the students loved it! We had so much fun, we plan to do more.

CCC is a dedicated group of volunteers who share the love of their certified companions with others in the community. CCC dogs come in all shapes & sizes – they just need to be calm, friendly, and affectionate. Teams visit nursing homes, child care centers, senior centers, schools, and hospitals in southeastern PA, NJ and DE. More info:
