As the world increasingly goes digital, it is already becoming a thing that dogs go viral for good reasons. The reasons could range from being inspirational to the most bizarre. But most of the time, pooches go viral because of an achievement they did.
Just last week, this group of dogs became the talk of the town when their photo went viral online. The dogs were later found out to be part of Canada’s service dogs.
The photo, which was taken inside a local theater in Canada, showed dogs waiting patiently for the production of the film ‘Billy Elliot’ to begin. The dogs, according to reports, almost occupied half of the seats inside the theater.
According to the handler of the dogs, Laura Mackenzie, the film viewing took place in time for the Stratford Festival in Ontario. Laura added that the activity aims to instill in the pooches the value of discipline during movie viewing inside the theater.

For Laura Mackenzie, one of the owners of the K-9 Country Inn Working Service Dogs, it is essential for pooches to be equipped with proper etiquette. Mackenzie added that the theater is a perfect place for this training.
She further explained that since the theater has lights, loud sounds, and different movements, the dogs will have the opportunity to be exposed to these. The goal for this film viewing is to help the dogs to stay calm for an extended period during movie time.
Meanwhile, Stratford Festival spokesperson Ann Swerdfager was amazed at how behaved the dogs were during the entirety of the film viewing. She lauded the dogs for exuding discipline inside the theater.
More than this, people inside the theater were likewise happy to see the presence of the dogs, Swedfager underscored. Since the activity was successful, Mackenzie looks forward to holding more events like this in the future.
