The Cell Dogs Program places homeless shelter dogs to be obedience trained by carefully selected inmates. The dog training program, taught by volunteers from K-9s Come 1st Inc. Day Care and Training Academy, teaches inmates how to obedience train dogs during an intensive 8 to 16 week course.
Upon graduation, the dogs are highly adoptable and possess obedience skills such as how to heel, sit, recall, and stay. They are also housed trained, leash trained and responsive to voice commands and some hand signals.
