News12 Long Island Helps Doggie Daycare Hounds Town USA Launch Inmate/Dog Training Program 

News12 Long Island helped launch the much-anticipated Handcuffs to Heeling program at Yaphank Correctional Facility, pairing 6 homeless dogs from a local shelter with 6 inmates from the local correctional facility. After a brief press conference, Hounds Town USA and Hounds Town Charities President Mike Gould led a training demonstration with the dogs and inmates, who did a wonderful job demonstrating their skills and how far they’ve come since the beginning of the program just four weeks ago.
