Jailed veterans in a Maryland prison are training puppies to become service dogs for their disabled comrades
Incarcerated veterans at one Maryland prison are now helping their comrades who return home from wars with disabilities by training service dogs for them from behind bars.
Three inmates at Western Correctional Institution have been sharing their cells since September with puppies provided by America’s VetDogs of Smithtown, New York.
Professional trainers say prison-raised dogs tend to succeed at higher rates because puppies thrive on consistency and rigid schedules, which is exactly what they find in prison.
