Meet Amos Comfort Dog!

The sweetest new resident of Loudoun County, Virginia, Our Savior’s Way Lutheran Church received Amos, a beautiful Golden Retriever, in the fall of 2018. Amos is a trained comfort dog. He has been trained through Lutheran Church Charities to remain calm, loving, and friendly during visits within the community and at scenes of crisis.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Qualifications” style=”custom” custom_background=”#bf0a30″ custom_text=”#ffffff” shape=”square” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fcapitalcomfort.org%2Fqualifications%2F|||”][vc_column_text]

What is a comfort dog?

It’s important to clarify that comfort dogs are not therapy dogs. Comfort and crisis response dogs are trained to handle stressful, crowded situations so that they can help people remain calm. People are encouraged to pet and engage with trained comfort dogs in situations of stress and sadness. Amos is a purebred Golden Retriever who can be trusted to interact with children and adults in calm and chaotic situations such as crisis scenes. Amos loves receiving hugs, sitting for petting, and laying close by when someone just needs to feel some extra love in moments of sadness.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Read FAQ’s” style=”custom” custom_background=”#bf0a30″ custom_text=”#ffffff” shape=”square” align=”left” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fcapitalcomfort.org%2Ffaq%2F|||”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1542214336087{background-color: #002868 !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][vc_column_text]
