Cole and Coco show off their skills
Second Chance Pals Cell Dog Program at Charlotte County Department of Corrections Work Camp
The Second Chance Pals program, places homeless shelter dogs in an obedience training program with carefully selected inmates. The dog training programs teach inmates how to obedience train dogs, using the C.L.A.S.S. Program, 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. Some dogs in the Second Chance Pals program move on to receive more training to become Therapy Dogs.
