Prisoners training guide dogs
An innovative program using prison inmates to train guide dogs for the blind is having huge success in some American jails. Everybody gets to benefit and not just the recipient of the trained dogs. It's reported that the dogs trained within the prison by prisoners have a higher rated of success than guide dogs trained outside. It's also reported that the prisoners lucky enough to have been given the responsibility of training a dog have a lower to nil rate of re offending once released. What a worthwhile and wonderful program empowering incarcerated people, giving them a sense of worth and purpose by showing trust they can care for a dog.
