Service Dogs Get a Fun Field Trip

A group of service dogs in training are learning how to interact out in the world so they can assist the humans who need them. However, this does not mean they cannot have a some fun while they are learning. One such situation happened recently, where a group of service dogs in training took an unforgettable field trip together: they went to Disneyland. The sweet dogs, who are all members of a group called Canine Companions for Independence located in California. The non-profit organization helps to train service animals and then place them with people who need special help in their lives.

While the dogs are still in training, that does not mean they can’t have some fun while they are learning. The dogs’ trip to Disneyland was meant to help the dogs explore the grounds of the amusement park and hopefully make some new friends and learn from the experience while they were there. Kendra Clark, who organized the trip for the group, says Disneyland is a perfect place for the dogs to practice all they have learned so far. It’s a place that has loud noises, crowds of people, and plenty of smells and sights to take in.

Not only did the dogs enjoy the trip, but other park attendees enjoyed seeing the dogs as well. This type of training is important for these dogs, so they can learn how to work and follow their training while being surrounded by plenty of distractions. Each of the dogs wore ears from Disney characters, like Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, and Minnie Mouse. They posed in spots throughout the park, like in teacups and even met some characters while they were in the park, too. It was tough to tell who was more excited to see who: the dogs or the characters!
