Many of the men and women who serve our country overseas tragically become disabled during their service. To help our disabled veterans, many of them get service dogs. Several programs around the United States use prisoners to train dogs.
According to patriotpaws.com, it takes about 1½ to 2 years to train service dogs and each dog cost up to $33,000. These programs benefit both society and the inmates. The prisoners, once released, have a skill that could be a means for employment. In this video, we see a dog, Pax, get reunited with his trainer, an inmate.
