UnChained teaches at-risk youth how to train shelter dogs basic skills, good manners and socialization using positive reinforcement. Through this training, the youth learn patience, responsibility and respect for themselves and others, while helping to increase the chances of adoption for the dogs. When the youth see the effects of change they have on the dogs by giving them a second chance at life, they begin to take the risk in believing they can do the same for themselves.
