Are you having problems training your hard-headed Scottish Terrier? Well, maybe a hardened criminal could help you out.
The New Bern Sun Journal in North Carolina reports that under the New Leash on Life Prison Canine Program, now in its second year, dogs are teamed with inmate trainers for eight weeks:
“I was lost when I first came to prison. But Callie (a Scottish terrier) has taught me a thing or two and knocked me down a peg or so,” said trainer Grady Meredith.
He said the dog has a mind of her own. “She’s obedient, but when she gets something on her mind, she stays on it,” Meredith said.
Callie landed in prison for extreme disobedience. We don’t know what Meredith did.
