Dog training program is about second chances


A new dog-training program involving inmates at the Trumbull Correctional Institute and dogs from the Trumbull County Dog Kennel is about second chances.

Ten weeks ago, the kennel, on Anderson Avenue in Howland, turned over six dogs to the prison’s minimum security camp, which is for inmates nearing the end of their prison terms.

Over that time, six inmates who were matched up with one of the dogs worked with the animal 24 hours per day with the help of weekly visits from an expert at Elite K9 Training of Cortland.

The goal of the program is to have the inmates provide obedience training to the animals to prepare them to be adopted.

The dog is the most wonderful creature on this planet.
I'm willing to bet that the dogs will teach these guys a thing or two and will be a win/win. Good luck on the program.
