An unconventional practice has evolved in the recent years of asking the assistance of dogs to give emotional support in courts.

A courthouse can be intimidating to most of us because all trials in solving social problems are held in this place. It is usual that a lot of tension can manifest in a courthouse hearing and it could affect the witnesses' emotions and memory recall while testifying. All people, especially children, have benefited from this new practice because dogs serve as calming instruments to help them cope with the courthouse environment and processes.
