The Corrective Services have partnered with Guide Dogs WA (GDWA) to deliver a special training program to raise and train assistance dogs for people living with low or no vision, a disability or illness.

Minimum security prisoners at Boronia Pre-release Centre for Women will be given instruction from trainers at GDWA and use the skills to teach puppies basic obedience and socialisation, while providing a loving home environment at Boronia. Prisoners selected to raise the puppies, will under supervision of Boronia staff, take the dogs into shops, restaurants and on public transport as part of the training. Two specially bred Labrador puppies, Pedro and Pablo have been placed with the prisoners and will reside at Boronia for 16 months.
