Society constantly evolves, and things steadily progress in our culture. Each year we get our minds blown with new medicines, technological achievements and scientific breakthroughs, and someone even managed to make a pack of dogs to stand still for a photo.

That someone is Woofpack animal daycare and training center in Miami, Florida. The brilliantly named Woofpack daycare center, run by talented trainers Sandra and Jose, has achieved an enviable feat of taking the most perfect pictures of large packs of dogs. Of course, it's not exactly part of the service that they officially provide. It's more of a thing they do for fun, but most dog owners know how impressive it is to make even one dog stand still for a photo.

Here's what they had to say to Bored Panda. “We provide a home-like environment as an education dog daycare. For the pictures, we practice a lot ‘sit’ and ‘stay’ commands, even with clients that are not doing training with us… the pictures aren’t something offered with the service, it’s just the way we have fun with them, hehe. And at the end, we end up having a better bond with them because of the structure and discipline we provide.”

The key to all of this "discipline magic" is training. Dog training, which is an application of behavior analysis which uses environmental events of antecedents, is essential for dogs in order for both the trainer and the dog to be happy. There are known cases of dog training dating back to Roman times, but modern dog training goes back to the 1950s, as it developed along with suburbanization.

There are many types of conditioning through which a dog can be trained. Classical conditioning is where a dog forms an association between two stimuli. Non-associative training modifies behavior through habituation and sensitization. Operant conditioning is a type of behavioral training where a dog forms an association between an antecedent and its consequence.

Dog owners are very aware of the fact that there are tons of ways to train your dogs, each having their own critics and proponents. There's the Koehler method, clicker training, motivational training, electronic training, model-rival training, dominance-based training, and relationship-based training. The key to choosing the right type of training is knowing your dog's attributes and personality, accurate timing of reinforcement or punishment, and consistent communication.

Is it just me or is this photoshopped? The dog on the left doesn't look like they have their butt on the actual post?

did these get sent home in their knapsacks, like in school. And you are supposed to put your dollar in the bag to pay for it?

Maybe it's my brain but two of them on the right are posing is a very suspicious way, and their faces approve.
