guide dog trainning
Puppies Behind Bars (PBB) is a program in New York State Prisons that puts prisoners with dogs being trained for various “careers” – e.g., Guide Dogs, Service Dogs, Bomb Sniffing Dogs, etc. At the time I posted this thread, PBB was collaborating with Guiding Eyes for the Blind (GEB) in that we would swap from time to time – meaning one of the PBB dogs would come live with us (puppy raisers) for a couple weeks while our GEB puppy would go to prison for training. One of the dogs we swapped with, Josh, was being raised by Roz. And while we never met, I was very impressed by her heart as you can read in one of her essay’s here – enjoy!
