BEACON, NEW YORK:  Carl Rothe discusses how to get the puppies to respond to commands during class for the Puppies Behind Bars (PPB) program at Fishkill Correctional Facility as prisoners Jesse (L) and Ian (R) listen. The PPB program works with prison inmates in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut to train service dogs, including ones who help injured soldiers and those suffering from post traumatic stress. Fishkill Correctional Facility is a medium security prison in New York with 22 men in the puppy program.
