***The NLOL program is a unique and very rewarding program that takes dogs out of a local shelter and places them in a high performance training program. The dogs are trained for a period of 8 weeks by inmate trainers at the Craven Correctional Institution. The inmates are taught proper training techniques under the direction of a Master Dog Trainer at the Craven Correctional Institution. At the end of the 8 week program, NLOL adopters will be invited to come to their NLOL dog's graduation and view for themselves what s/he has learned, as well as the opportunity to meet their inmate handler/trainer. At the end of the ceremony, NLOL adopters will get to take their new NLOL dog home with them!
