These dogs having a good time at Disneyland will make your day

A group of service dogs in training recently spent the day dressing up and trotting around Disneyland, and the pictures are the most adorable thing you will see today.

Everyone deserves a day off every now and then. It gives you a chance to rest and recharge and, of course, to do all the fun things you've been putting off for weeks. 

And a day off does a world of good for dogs, too. Just look at how these soon-to-be service dogs from the Canine Companions for Independence programme in California enjoyed themselves!

The dogs got into the spirit, dressing up in Mickey Mouse ears and even taking a spin on the teacup ride. The outing, while it may have been fun, was also a part of the dogs' training.  

The dogs also took pictures with the Disney characters. 

For dogs, hanging out in the bustle of a place like Disneyland is also an opportunity for them "to socialise and get used to seeing different sights, sounds, smells, and people", which makes them better service dogs in the long-run. 

The dogs had a great time at Disneyland, proving that it is indeed "the happiest place on earth" - even for your pets.
