Franklin County Sheriff's Office new school for therapy dogs

Two years ago, Mattis was the first therapy K-9 dog for the Franklin County Sheriff's Office. Now he, and the department are helping train others from across the country.

The books are out, students are ready to learn. This is a different kind of class. In this class, it's ok to sleep or drool during the session.

“The fact that this moment is here and we are training other agencies and other handlers and other dogs, to go back and serve their communities in a different way is so rewarding!” said Darrah Metz, with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.
