IMPLEMENTING PFT

D. Training

Training animals in a PFT program can vary from 30 days to 12 months depending on what purpose the animal will serve and how much training the inmates themselves have received. For example, if the animal is to assist a physically or hearing impaired individual, it will undergo much more than the basic training required for an animal that is to be adopted.
