THE STORY:

Support Puppies Behind Bars on RYOT.org. Puppies Behind Bars is dedicated to training prison inmates to raise puppies to be guide dogs for the blind.

In 2006, Puppies Behind Bars began raising service dogs for the disabled as it enabled us to affect a diverse group of individuals with varying needs and of different ages. In addition to basic obedience, manners, and socialization, inmate puppy raisers are responsible for teaching the pups almost eighty commands.

Once the pups reach eighteen months of age, they are tested to determine their suitability for formal training by PBB. When a puppy is matched with a disabled individual, final training continues specific to the client’s needs. Currently, over forty service dogs are being raised in three of our six prisons.
