Organizers hope one thing to come out of a conference next week will be that service dogs will accompany Arkansas children who have to testify about abuse and neglect. -

This is a good idea and hopefully the children would not have to testify in an open court, or could provide videotaped testimony.

Sounds like a plus in a system that's pretty much negative from beginning to end for children. thanks.

Nice to see a positive action being taken in our otherwise completely screwed up judicial system.

This is a brilliant idea, but do hope children would not have to testify in an open court.
Noted with thanks Carrie.

Wonderful for the children to have this unconditional love from the dogs. Suzanne L. is correct, they should never have to testify in open court in the first place. They can have a video testimony for heavens sake. These kids have been through enough!

That would be a very good idea. It would help the kids not to be too upset when testifying.

To help children of abuse,these canines will be doing a greatly needed service.
