Courthouse Dogs Foundation provides technical assistance and training for agencies that want to establish a best practices program for utilizing a dog to provide emotional support to people in legal proceedings.
In a Courthouse Dog Program:
1. The dog is a graduate facility dog from an assistance dog school that is
a member of Assistance Dogs International
2. The dog’s handler is a professional in the legal system
3. The facility dog is utilized in such a way as to not disrupt legal proceedings
or create legal issues
If your agency is interested in developing a Courthouse Dogs Program, or wants more information on this type of program, please contact us.
