ROGERS COUNTY, Oklahoma -

Dogs are now working in courtrooms in Craig, Mayes and Rogers counties.

The therapy dogs will help comfort crime victims at meetings and when they testify.

Each dog wears a specially-designed super hero cape that includes a special badge from the District Attorney of district 12, Matt Ballard.

The dogs are a special comfort to children who have to testify in front of a room full of strangers.

"So far the reaction has been great, the kids have loved the dogs, there's been a very positive reaction," said Holly Webb with Barnes Children's Advocacy Center.

Each dog and handler go through special training before they're allowed in the courtroom.
