WATCH: Juvie Kids Stay Out Of Trouble By Training Dogs!

Everyone knows that dogs are man's best friend. But they can also be wonderful teachers.

The West Michigan Humane Society has created the B.A.R.C. Program -- Building Adolescent Responsibility and Compassion -- where youth offenders at the Kent County Juvenile Detention Center are given the chance to rehabilitate rescue dogs.

They choose adolescents to be a part of a four week session in where the youth learn to train and care for the dogs. Teaching them responsibility and that there's always time for a fresh start, HooplaHa met up with the group and their pups to tell their inspirational story.
