*Non-Profit groups are so incredibly special to us at Pug Story! For the month of December, Pug Story is spotlighting, Puppies Behind Bars  (PBB) trains prison inmates to raise service dogs for wounded war veterans and explosive detection canines for law enforcement. Puppies enter prison at the age of eight weeks and live with their inmate puppy-raisers for approximately 24 months. As the puppies mature into well-loved, well-behaved dogs, their raisers learn what it means to contribute to society rather than take from it. PBB programs bring the love and healing of dogs to hundreds of individuals every year. The dogs bring hope and pride to their raisers, and independence and security to those they serve.

They constantly modify instruction and dog training methods based on their own experience, input from other experts, and feedback from the veterans and law enforcement officers who are ultimately paired with their dogs.

They achieve high graduation rates by carefully selecting dogs with ideal characteristics for working life. This program’s flexibility allows PBB to train two different types of working dogs. This allows them to switch a dog’s career path if their response to early training indicates that a change might lead to greater success. The dogs, in this sense, choose the career for which they are best suited.
