Dogs help provide support in courtrooms

The idea of using dogs to ease the tension of being in a courtroom is gaining popularity across the country. Courthousedogs.com began in Seattle when Stephens took her son's service dog, Jeeter, to work and discovered that the dog had a calming effect on young witnesses. The prosecutor's office started using Labradors Ellie and Jeeter as courthouse dogs in 2003 for pretrial interviews and in courtrooms. Now the practice is spreading across the country to courts in Texas, California, Florida, Missouri and Michigan.
