Sure, late is better than never.
But wouldn’t it be great if we stepped in to help before things got too bad?
Jail Dogs in 1C, Webisode 5
The earlier you can help someone (human or canine) at risk, the more successful you’ll be.
That’s one of the reasons this inmate dog training program, set in a jail instead of a prison, intrigued me so much.
Once someone serves serious time in prison, they have a very difficult time rebuilding their life when (or if) they get out.
But the men in Gwinnett County jail are, for the most part, in trouble for lesser offenses. They’ll serve their time in jail and return home.
And when they get home, they’ll be able to put what they learned training dogs into practice.
Not just how to teach basic manners to a dog but how to show compassion and how to build trust. Or at least that’s what some of the men in this video say.
Is it raining on your face yet to see these dogs and people getting second chances?
Have you or your dog gotten a second chance that turned you in a new direction when you needed it?
