Service dogs attend live musical as part of training
If you think these dogs are attending any lecture than you are wrong, they are actually attending a performance of a Canadian theatre’s live musical. Sounds quite weird?
A photo of the dozen eager canines sitting in the theatre seats went viral when Ontario’s Stratford Festival shared it on Twitter, and the head trainer for K-9 Country Inn Working Service Dogs said the performance of Billy Elliot: The Musical was part of the dogs’ training.
Laura MacKenzie said the theatre outing was part of the two-year training programme designed to help the canines keep their calm amid crowds, unusual lights and loud noises.
Ann Swerdfager of the Stratford Festival said, “The dogs were extremely well behaved.”
