Welcome to Good Dog

Welcome to Good Dog

The oldest love affair on Earth has been going on for 30,000 years.
It’s the bond between dogs and humans.

Which explains why…

  • dogs can talk to us without words;
  • in ways that are loving, powerful, transforming;
  • and why, in times of pain, dogs want to help us heal.

Our Work

The Good Dog Foundation harnesses the dog human bond to ease human suffering and support learning with Animal Assisted Intervention. Some examples:

Good Dog Oliver visits a school to help children read.

Good Dog Burl comforts a hospital counselor.
