Does anyone know anything about dog training on the camp side? Does an inmate get paid? How long is the program for a dog?

This is what I believe I understand about the dog program.....(1)Your incarceration time must be for more than 12 months (2) it is purely a volunteer program (no pay) and (3) you have to be apply for a position and be approved.
How long is the dog in the program? Guess it depends on what he/she was charged with !! (LOL)...Sorry but you set yourself up for that one !! Honestly I don't know how long the dog is "in" for but you can bet they're probably treated with equal (or better) lifestyle as the inmates.

NorTex, I like your humor!
Is there anything at camp that inmates do to earn money? Are there classes and such for fun?

Sis,
Yes, all the inmates are assigned jobs and are paid for their jobs. Different jobs have different pay scales but it's not a choice-thing, you are assigned a job just where ever the counselor decides to put you, period. The inmate can put in a request for a specific type of job but from what I have heard that means nothing...you will work where they tell you....don't expect more than about $15 per month paycheck !
Classes for fun ? Depends on what you call "fun"....there are a few classes offered but most are prep classes for returning to the real world.
