Sit, Down, Stay Can Mean Freedom for Dogs and Inmates

This inspirational thought comes from the good folks at Second Chance dog training, in Miami. Second Chance is a program in which non-violent inmates train shelter dogs, preparing them to become well-behaved, beloved pets in new homes. All training is based on the 10 exercises in the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen program. Inmates benefit by learning marketable skills. The program is a collaboration between Miami-Dade County Animal Services Department and the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department and started in September.

Find a dog trainer near your location and take the Canine Good Citizen test for your dog.
