About the NEW LEASH ON LIFE dog-training program: Pamlico's New Leash on Life program has graduated and found homes for 175 dogs as of April 2017. NLOL benefits the inmates as well as the dogs. The inmate trainers learn patience, responsibility and a feeling of accomplishment while becoming experienced dog trainers. The rescued dogs are microchipped,vetted, vaccinated, and altered, as well as house, crate and leash trained. They receive training in basic obedience, and sometimes advanced obedience along with agility and rally training. These well-behaved companions graduate every eight weeks ready to join new, forever families. Adopting families will be able to attend their dog's graduation in December.
