Featured Handler: Ana-Maria Osorio, M.D.

Ana-Maria works so hard and is so devoted to serving so many people.

Above & Beyond Spirit: Diane

Diane Wiltsie and her fabulous team mate Dobby are a fabulous addition to our PAWS ABOVE THE REST.  At the 4 of July Picnic she spent the whole day nurturing and encouraging the multitude of children who came to play our DOG RACES game. 

The Power of YES

Look at our Ansel, who is a still a pup.  He just loves to learn new things.  Rim of the World Comfort Pets are all stars in training. Look at that eye contact! Never underestimate the power of high-value treats and a quick YES when your dog responds the way you want them to.

Visiting at Cajon High School

Rim of the World Comfort Pets helped many of the students at Cajon High School in San Bernardino, CA as they “de-stressed” before finals. One person had never pet a dog before this day. In the end, he asked to take Jet home with him!
