Courthouse Dogs

Ellie and Jeeter are a couple of dogs that are hard at work in the courthouse helping people feel calm and comfortable in the stressful situation that being in court is. These dogs were trained by Canine Companions for Independence and work in King County, Washington. The dogs support children who have to testify about crimes committed against them or others making the time in court less stressful for the kids. There are many more dogs like them at work in various prosecuting attorney offices around the country.
