join the mission of making society better comforters — one person at a time

You’ve been there. You rush into the grocery store and head down the bread aisle right into someone you know whose daughter has cancer. The man whose wife just died. The single mom that just lost her job.

You don’t know what to say to them. You feel anxious. You want to do the right thing and do something to help but what if you make them cry? What if what you say makes it worse? What if they are over it, hadn’t thought about their pain in a long time and you have just brought it back up again? And, if it all goes bad, then what do you do?

For that split second you have a choice: turn and leave hoping they didn’t see you or because you have read Paws to Comfort and learned the skill of comfort, you approach them to give comfort and connection. They feel noticed and comforted. You made an inspiring connection with someone who needed you.

This beautiful, simple step-by-step guide teaches:

  • The powerful and effective lessons dogs can teach in how to comfort.

  • How we can overcome the barriers that stop us from creating a one-to-one connection of comfort.

  • What to say and do for those you recognize need comfort.

  • How to create your personal comfort plan to be ready to comfort, anytime, anywhere.
