Bag Scooper Donates to Puppies Behind Bars

Bag Scooper Donates to Puppies Behind Bars
*Puppies Behind Bars (PBB) trains prison inmates to raise service dogs for wounded war veterans and explosive detection canines for law enforcement.


Puppies enter prison at the age of eight weeks and live with their inmate puppy-raisers for approximately 24 months. As the puppies mature into well-loved, well-behaved dogs, their raisers learn what it means to contribute to society rather than take from it.


PBB programs bring the love and healing of dogs to hundreds of individuals every year. The dogs bring hope and pride to their raisers, and independence and security to those they serve.

Knowing how special dogs can be to humans is what inspired Bag Scooper to support this effort. Keep up the great work PBB team!

Thinking of getting a puppy? Unfortunately, a program like Puppies Behind Bars who do the bulk of the work with developing a puppy, is not available to everyone.

Because I have seen many families misunderstand why puppies do what they do, I discovered an article on Your Dog that speaks to the “mysteries” of puppyhood that will help in your new adventure with your new family member. If you are considering a puppy, this is a must read!

The Journey of a Puppy – The Stages of Puppyhood and How to Handle Them

Reminder…dogs train us more often than we train them. Be prepared by understanding what these loving creatures are trying to tell you through their actions. The worst the act, the louder they are trying to speak!
