K-9 Comfort Dogs Zippy (Trinity Roselle, Illinois) and JoJo (Living Christ Arlington Heights, Illinois) helped some of the students with high anxiety over testing calm down their fears. The school coordinator stated that some of the students become physically sick thinking about taking tests.

Zippy and JoJo, with handlers Steve Kalbach and Becky Staehlin, spent about 30 minutes in the morning before testing began. During that time, the students had time to pet the dogs and calm down their fear of test taking.

K-9 Comfort Dogs Invited to Participate in FREEze Day at the Brookfield Zoo Print E-mail
Brookfield Zoo The sun was shining at Brookfield Zoo as the K-9 Comfort Dogs greeted 4,900+ visitors for FREEze Day at Brookfield Zoo.

Adults and children enjoyed petting the dogs and learning more about the K-9 Ministry; even the children who were traditionally scared of dogs reached out and pet them. Visitors asked questions of the handlers and stopped at the LCC table to get more information on the Comfort Dogs. Many fans of the Comfort Dogs stopped by to give them all a pet and to collect the dogs' business cards.

The event was set up on the West Mall area of the Zoo. Also attending the event with the K-9 Comfort Dogs were the Green Valley Sled Dogs
