Our family dog, Coco E. Claire, will also serve as the resident funeral service therapy dog here at Smith Funeral & Cremation Care.
Having just recently completed the first phase of her training, over the course of the next few weeks she be gradually worked into the day to day operations of the funeral home to bring comfort and peace to the families we serve. Her training will complete in the fall with a 21 day intensive course, and prior to to this will go through regular training sessions to keep her skills in check. When this course is complete, she will also be able to assist our handi-capable guests with many of their needs that they may while being a guest with us
Although a therapy dog is unique to the area, they are not unique to funeral homes. Many families have already met her, and immediately fall for her happy demeanor, and love for everyone. She's a fan of treats, so we may have a few laying around here so that you can really get on her good side!
Families who wish for Coco be a part of their experience with us will meet her at the funeral arrangement conference and she will be as much a part of the service as you wish her to be.
We look forward to integrating Coco into part of our family care team!
