On Monday, Sierra, Samson, Wallace and Clark entered the Valley State Prison on Monday to meet their trainers and begin their training. It was so awesome to watch the inmate trainers and the dogs connect and begin a relationship that will continue for the next 6 months and last a lifetime. The trainers have been honing their skills over the past year and it was obvious that they are highly skilled as they handled the rambunctious newcomers.
We are so grateful for the support we’ve received over the past year-and-a-half and especially for Ali Imel, Yosemite Bark, who has taken the training program from zero to go! in such a short time. We are excited about the potential of each dog and are looking forward to watching their progress.
