PGD’s K-9 Comfort Crew

PGD partners with the Therapy K9’s of Southwest Florida to bring you weekly visits from this special team. A therapy dog is trained to provide affection and comfort to people in a variety of locations and situations from hospitals, nursing homes, schools, hospices, disaster areas, children advocacy centers, and in airports like PGD.

When you see these friendly pups with their escorts in purple polo shirts, don’t hesitate to come say hello. Keep in mind that the dogs will be in the secure departures area with passengers that have cleared security for most of their visit.
