Courts Canine Support Program

The ACT Courts are trialling a canine support program aimed at reducing the anxiety levels of court users.

The trial will involve a therapy dog from Guide Dog NSW/ACT visiting the court with their handler for a few hours per week supporting children, vulnerable persons, victims and other court users.

If you, or someone you know, are in the waiting areas of the court and are allergic or afraid of dogs please inform a staff member or the handler so that the dog can be removed from the area or kept away from you.
