dogs and inmates

blog_illl95-06

在美國洛杉磯郡的男子中央監獄裡,正推行著一個「一囚一狗」的計劃。計劃中每個囚犯都被分配一隻狗,而他們必須學會怎樣怎樣訓練這些狗,讓它們成為有紀律、可被家庭收養的狗。這個計劃既可讓囚犯學習如何訓練狗隻,亦可增加狗隻被領養的機會,一舉兩得。
這些被救回來的狗大都缺乏相處技巧,而且脾性很差,若沒有這個計劃的話,這些狗會被送去人道毀滅。但在狗隻訓練師帶領下,囚犯們把這些狗訓練成可被家庭收養的狗。至今已有八隻透過這個計劃訓練出來的狗成功被有心人收養,找到牠們的安樂窩。

At the Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail, they are running a programme that pairs the
inmates with rescue dogs. This programme benefits both the inmates and the dogs by teaching inmates how to train dogs as well as preparing the rescue dogs for adoption. Most of those dogs were on death row, lack skills, have bad tempers and would otherwise be euthanized. The inmates were led by a dog behaviourist in an effort to train and rehabilitate those rescue dogs for adoption. So far 8 such dogs had been trained and found a home at loving families.
