    The dogs are part of the K-9 Country Inn Working Service Dogs? program. Laura MacKenzie, owner of the program explained to CBC Radio how the theater "gives us the opportunity to expose the dogs to different stimuli such as lights, loud noises and movement of varying degrees."

    “The positive reaction to our outing is both shocking and amazing,” MacKenzie added. “We are hoping that our adorable photo will be a good opportunity to educate the public about service dogs and accommodating people with disabilities.”
