A group of training service dogs was given a trip to the happiest place on earth.

The dogs are members of Canine Companions for Independence, a California-based nonprofit organization that trains and provides the best animals to those in need of assistance.

These lovable dogs are still learning under the guidance of their caretakers and in order to improve their social skills, the team visited Disneyland to make new friends and have some fun.

“Disneyland is the perfect place to socialize our puppies with crowds, loud noises, different sights and smells, and different kinds of people,” Kendra Clark, the group organizer, told The Dodo.

“The pups absolutely loved walking around the park,” Clark continued. “They posed in photos with their Mickey’s ears and ate up all the attention they drew from the crowds.”

“Seeing how happy they got when they met the characters sure was a treat! The characters were almost as excited as the dogs were to say hello!”

The trip was a success and the team plans to do it again, all for the benefit of dogs who will someday play an important role in the life of people who need them.

“As puppy raisers, part of our job is educating the public about service dogs and Canine Companions’ mission,” Clark added. “So it was really wonderful that the crowds were not only incredibly interested in our service pups in training, but also so respectful of the fact that they were working.”
