PRISON PROGRAM

 
General Information
Description of ServicePrison Pup Partnership is a program where qualified prison inmates are trained to become hearing and service dog trainers. Statistics show that prison dogs experience advanced training in half the time as dogs raised in foster homes because of the higher level of training time the dogs receive from inmates. This helps to match a service dog with people who need help sooner.
