"Counting a class of six veterans who are being trained with their dogs right now, we will have 87 teams of veteran-service dogs," says Eric Barsness, director of development for PBB.

...
"Aside from the commands, the dogs focus on the veteran and the veteran focuses on the dog," Barsness says. "It's a very strong calming effect. It makes it much easier for the veterans to go out in public."
For inmates, PBB offers an opportunity for life after prison.
"They become expert dog trainers and handlers," Barsness says. "If they have been in the program for 18 months, they receive a certificate from the New York Department of Labor stating they have this skill."
They also learn loyalty and love.
"Some of them have never experienced the unconditional love given by the dogs in their lives," Barsness says.
The program concludes with 16 days of team training, which largely takes place in the prisons, enabling inmates to teach veterans how to take full advantage of their dog's skills.
"That aspect really brings the process full circle," Barsness says.
