Colorado’s courts play important roles in your life. When you buy or sell goods or property, get married or divorced, have children, work, retire, drive a car, and even after you die, your state courts can protect your rights and enforce your responsibilities. If you are the victim of a crime, are accused of committing a crime, or witness a crime, you may be required to appear in a Colorado court. You may also be called upon to serve as a juror, one of the most important privileges we all share as citizens.

THERAPY DOG TEAMS: Are you interested in visiting at the Boulder Justice Center with your therapy dog?

The Boulder Justice Center is a vetted facility working closely with Therapy Dogs Boulder County to bring some wonderful dog therapy to staff and visitors who greatly appreciate the interaction.  This Therapy Dog program is a totally volunteer program and operates with team visits during each week.

All teams (a team is a handler and dog) are signed up to a group email list which will coordinate the special visits with the facility.  

Requirements for therapy dog teams:

  1. Therapy Dog Registration:  All teams must be registered with a therapy dog association.  The accepted registration memberships are:

– Alliance of Therapy Dogs (

If you are not presently registered with this association, there are several tester/observers for Alliance of Therapy Dogs inside of our Therapy Dogs Boulder County group who can help get you started on that process.  Use the “contact us” selection from the main menu and let us know you would like to be tested with your dog.

2.  Teams must also be registered with this website (TDBC) with their contact info and ATD card.

3.  Handlers will be asked to sign a release form for a Background Check and handler must be approved by the facility before work begins.
