Today's episode features a coversation with Joan Dalton, Founder of Project POOCH, a nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for youth in corrections to learn responsibility, patience, and compassion by caring for, training, and finding adoptive homes for shelter dogs. The relationships, emotional support, and mutual trust established between the trainers and the dogs reap long-term rewards for both. For some youth and dogs, this relationship is a first experience of unconditional love, and it helps them develop the self-confidence and hope they need to build future relationships.
