I think that's such a good program, especially this one because it can board peoples dogs overnight, and also will train them for you. Its a win/win situation for everyone, even the dog. My brother in law has a former prison dog, and he said its the best dog he has ever had.

We have a similar women's prison program out here in BC. It's a good deal for the dogs and the inmates, they also do boarding which I have heard is very good.

Amazing what a great idea for the unwanted shelter dogs. I believe a dog can learn anything! It's the great skills of the trainer that accomplishes it.

My hearing dog was trained by an inmate and I meet the guy , he said he felt that he was giving back to society by training my dog and the guy said he had fun working with my dog b/c he was so smart.
