How we can help

Wagging Warriors offers a variety of services to youth and adults in the local community. Our volunteers and therapy dogs offer comfort and/or services to people through individual visits or in group settings. We have been able to establish an array of visits and interactions who have a multitude of different talents. Below are details of the types of visits that Wagging Warriors offers.


Comfort Visits are intended to boost the morale of the youth and adults while providing comfort and support. This time allows visitors to greet our therapy dogs while getting to know them as a team for Wagging Warriors. These visits are designed for bigger groups of people or 1-on-1 visits. Many common Comfort Visits will be visiting students at local schools; learning about therapy dogs or working on educational goals, meeting travelers at airports during the holiday season and visiting senior center facilities and local hospitals.


Our Comfort visits can be designed with specific, purposeful goals for the visitors. Through interactions and activities with our therapy dogs, our volunteer teams play an integral role in working with everyone they meet during their visits.

Comfort Visits Offered:

1. Reading
