How We Met?

I applied for a program called Weekend puppy raising, training a service dog for NEADS. The puppy stays in a prison 5 days a week, and I get to take him on the weekends. The reason they put these pups in prisons is that the prisoners have so much time on their hands they have a lot of energy to train a puppy. NEADS always makes sure that the puppy does not go to a prisoner that would abuse the pup. FYI: Service dogs are not Guide dogs for the blind. They do things like turn on and off light switches, open doors and pull wheelchairs. I have kept Barrett for every weekend for about a year and now he is off to NEADS for evaluation and if he passes then on to official training. If you want to read more about NEADS here is a link to their website: http://neads.org/ and there is a link on their home page that say Puppy Program, click that link and it will talk about weekend puppies.
