Clallam Bay Inmates Reunite with Reformed Dogs

Wednesday, 9/28/16, was the first reunion in the five years that WAG has sponsored a dog training program at Clallam Bay Correction Center.  About 50 people attended, including about 35 WAG board and group members, and dog owners.

The dogs who bounded into the visit room at the prison for a reunion with their inmate handlers were among the 156 adult dogs and 73 puppies whose lives were turned around by the men at CBCC.  The dogs, accompanied by their owners, included Sky the Great Pyrenees Husky, Connor the boxer-husky and Skeeter the Chihuahua.

The inmates, about a dozen among the 900 at Clallam Bay who earned participation in the program through good behavior, have trained their dogs daily over weeks or months — however long it takes — until the dogs pass an American Kennel Club obedience test.

These inmates had many positive comments about the effect this program has had on them such as: “This has helped a lot in dealing with people, dealing with staff.”

At the end of the presentation, WAG members, inmates and dog owners were urged to mingle — with a reminder that the setting for all this good cheer was a prison.  Handshakes only, no hugs.
