Harris and inmate Dennis Johnson who trained Judy showed the audience the achievements Bob and Judy walked alongside trainers sat and placed on command Johnson' had taught Judy to jump through a hoop which she did several times Several volunteers from the shelter dabbed tears from their eyes They knew the dogs had been successfully rescued Judy went to a young couple in the county while Bob went to the father of Lawrence Solomon superintendent at nearby Odom Correctional Institution! father was not at the graduation so Harris tried to tell Solomon how to care for Bob strictly a one-man Harris told Solomon going to take about two weeks before do let you know how Solomon said He told Solomon that come take care of Bob after he gets out of prison in five years if Solomon would like A short time later Carroll introduced three new dogs to the training program It was his way of getting Harris Johnson and the other inmates to think beyond Bob Judy and Denise Harris pay attention to the new dogs He had one more thing to tell Solomon about Bob his secret to gaining trust He reaches down and scratches a spot on the Bide of neck Bob turns his head counterclockwise and his eyes go unfocused in pure bliss he turns his head that way you got Harris said But Solomon try to scratch Bob who was skittish around him Solomon walked away to go back to work Someone would come by later to pick up Bob Harris stepped back and turned his stocky 5-foot-9 frame away from those around him He grabbed a handkerchief in a hand big enough to palm a basketball in mid-dribble Then he wiped at his eyes neK3 By Dan Kane The (Raleigh) News Observer TILLERY NX A Halifax County deputy found Bob a black Labrador mix on a back road a year ago when he was a pup just a few weeks rid He and two other male pups were starving in the wild Urn deputy took them to a volunteer-run shelter in the county Durham County deputies found Kenneth Harris near Bahama where he had stolen lumber from a construction site Hie deputies chased the smalltime crack dealer to a housing project where he turned himself in He was sentenced in 2002 to more than eight years in prison under the four-strikes law During the course of two months this year Harris and Bob helped eadi other mi a path out of confinement even though it was a path that would eventually lead them qnrt Thqy were among the first dog-inmate teams to participate in Caledonia Correctional New Leash on program Harris learned to train Bob to be a well-behaved pet who could be readily adopted instead of destroyed in an overcrowded shelter Bob provided Harris with a way to make his time in prison productive and rewarding teaching him a new skill that he might turn into a career when he leaves prison State Department of Correction officials call the program a The community gets trained pets the prison keeps inmates productive the inmates learn a new skill and as Fay Lassiter the assistant chief of program services for the Correction Department put it: "The sentence is commuted to A Dominican nun started the stopped in mid-run plunked down in center field and looked at Harris His playful brown eyes and happy-go-lucky grin said it all Harris walked to the dog lay down on the grass and rested his head on hips as if the dog were a pillow Carroll pulled out his camera and took a photo better way to advertise the he thought Teaching and learning That afternoon though he thought about the scene differently know going to be hard on the inmates giving them Carroll said Harris and the five other inmates in the program began each morning feeding and walking the dogs before putting them through their obedience lessons The dogs first learned to walk on a leash alongside their trainers then to sit mid to stay Next they learned to which means go to a designated location Each command took about a week and a half for the dogs to learn Greg Richardson a Halifax County deputy who works with the K-9 unit trained the inmates He taught them hand signals to use for the commands such as a dosed fist for stay One day Richardson watched the dogs as the inmates walked them roughly 20 paces between two cones It appeared the dogs as they walked alongside the inmates were listening to the commands But Richardson realized the dogs were merely counting their steps so they would round the cones with their trainers That work in the real world Richardson told the inmates why they had to change their routines so the dogs paid attention to the commands Bob had a quirk that Harris first prison-dog training program in Washington state nearly 25 years ago Since then several states have launched them including North Carolina a year ago The Correction Department has found homes for 42 of the 44 dogs in the program Only two have failed to complete it Leash on Life operates out of six prisons four are minimum-security and Caledonia and Craven Correctional Institution are medium-security No simple matter Harris 43 volunteered for the program as soon as he learned about it He had trained dozens of beagles to hunt while growing up in northern Durham County and had left several of them in the care of his cousin Prism officials looked at his record and saw he was a nonviolent criminal with good behavior behind bars and no history of deviant acts Harris believe his good fortune He would spend his days training dogs simple obedience instead of taking a kitchen job or toiling in the cannery for vegetables grown on prison farm But there was one catch that Harris learned as the weeks went by After taking care of Bob and training him to sit to stay and to come running on a sharp whistle Harris was going to have to let him ga Bill Carroll the program director for Caledonia knew that was no simple Aiatter Midway through the program Carroll watched Harris let Bob run loose one morning Bob took off after the other two dogs in the training program Judy a German shepherd mix and Denise a hound mix and they chased and nipped at each other in reckless glee But then Bob biologist supervisor in the Fisheries Management Section When biologists tested in late July they averaged six bay scallops per tow Murphey said Last year those tests averaged 18 per tow and there was little harvest then she said According to records of dock-side seafood sales fishermen sold 80 pounds of bay scallops to dealers for all of 2004 down from 14194 pounds in 2003 and less than 1 percent of the previous five-year average Fisheries rules allow the needed to correct The dog was so used to living in a kennel from his days in the shelter that he often ran back to it particularly if Judy And Denise were there One day Bob ran back to the kennel twice after Harris tried to get him to place on a small platform in the prison Harris and the other inmates took copious notes about what they and the dogs learned They filled out journals that would go to the future owners so they would have a better understanding of their pets going to be a real good dog to Harris wrote neatly in the journal after one training session He called Bob his bigheaded and told him he had to do well during their daily walks so both succeed Friends part ways When graduation came it went just as the program started with an official event in the prison gymnasium The prison choir augmented by bass and keyboard sang old gospel standards to a crowd of prison officials local dignitaries and several volunteers from the Down East Animal Refuge in Scotland Neck The prison cafeteria dished up roast beef and turkey with green beans and mashed potatoes It was a day to advertise the good work of the six inmate dog trainers prison staff and Richardson and to get the message out that there were strays who needed homes Rain leaked through several cracks in the aging roof and collected in buckets along a wall lined with weight benches As Harris waited for the show to begin someone asked him what he had learned from the program Patience and responsibility he
