Training dogs with inmates at GRC

Jane Miller recently spent a day at The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction Grafton Correctional Institution, Grafton Reintegration Center working with inmates on training techniques and skills Healing Companions, Inc. service dogs need to perform. These range from teaching them to train the dogs basic skills (sit, heel, come, watch me, go to mat, down, etc.) as well as to tuck their tail (so their tails are not stepped on when they are in restaurants, theaters, etc)., not shake in public places and or eat food left on the floor They also learn to train specific tasks clients need like pawing, nudging, leaning, turning on lights, room checks, retrieves and many other tasks. Jane teaches the inmates relaxation/stress reduction techniques for themselves and the dogs incorporating canine massotherapy, TTouch, Reiki, meditation, breathing, and visualization.
