This #NationalDogDay, we're giving an extra special shout out to Errol, King County’s Courthouse dog.

Errol has been trained to assist people with mental disabilities, elderly individuals, teens and young children – essentially anyone who might find a dog comforting – as they are called upon to provide courtroom testimony or go through a witness interview.

King County had the nation’s first courthouse dog, and since then there are now 100+ Courthouse Dogs across the United States and the concept is expanding to other countries worldwide.
