Dogs and humans share a special bond, which is why so many funeral homes are beginning to get grief therapy dogs. These specially trained dogs help people cope with grief by lowering their stress, boosting their mood, and offering comfort. That’s why we regularly feature grief therapy dogs on our Instagram account!

Since it’s Pet Appreciation Week, we wanted to highlight the grief therapy dogs we have featured so far. We thank them for the comfort they provide to grieving families.
