In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits for a police department or any other first responder agency to have a comfort/facility K-9. We will provide examples of how to properly use the K-9s with demonstrations and explain the process to apply to Puppies Behind Bars and the training they provide to receive one of the K-9s.




Puppies Behind Bars (PBB) trains incarcerated individuals to raise service dogs for veterans and first responders, facility dogs for law enforcement, and as explosive-detection canines. Founded more than 25 years ago,  Puppies Behind Bars’ guiding philosophy has been that it is all about the dogs.  The women and men who are incarcerated have been asked to put puppies at the center of their lives and commit to producing the best working dogs in the country.
