Puppies Behind Bars / Dog Tags Program

Behind Bars website:

Dog Tags ® is a Puppies Behind Bars® initiative, launched in 2006, which honors and
assists wounded OIF/OEF veterans.

By pairing you with a specially trained Labrador or golden retriever service dog, we can
help you cope with the challenges of everyday life.

Our dogs, raised in prison, are trained to perform over 80 service dog commands. Since we

commands for wounded warriors with these conditions.

All our dogs can open and close doors, turn lights on and off, dial 911 on a phone, carry
shopping bags, do laundry, and bring items to you. In addition, we teach them how to find
your car in a crowded parking lot; how to look both ways before you enter a room; how to
“watch my back”; and how to stop people approaching, if their approach is making you
