Description

Explore the true story of Iggy, a special dog who helps kids through difficult times. When children disclose abuse, they often navigate an unfamiliar chain of events, sometimes testifying in court. Iggy is a specially trained facilitator dog who helps make each child he meets feel comfortable with the job they have to do. Iggy eases their path with his gentle, nonjudgmental friendship. He can be present for police interviews, counseling sessions, court preparation and testifying. He helps children aged three to eighteen feel more confident. It's a big job, but not too big for a dog with an even bigger heart.
