If you live your daily life spending a good amount of time on the internet, you’ve probably stumbled upon the Jerusalema challenge by now.

If not, here’s a quick walk-through.

This is basically a dance challenge to the gospel-influenced house song “Jerusalema” which was produced by the South African producer Master KG and sung by singer-songwriter Nomcebo.

Despite the song being in the Zulu language, the rest of the world definitely didn’t shy off from joining the challenge.

Music knows no language indeed.

Now all sorts of people have tried this trend and posted their very own rendition of the Jerusalema dance.

From policemen to nurses to coast guards, this challenge knows no limits.

In fact, a quick search will take you to various compilations of people dancing to this very catchy song.

But a particular entry easily caught our attention and it’s the take of a group of dog handlers to the challenge posted on Youtube by Sisters Buttons.

What makes it adorable?

Well, the cute canines joined the fun too. The video started out with the very familiar beats of the song as the dog handlers walked beside their respective canines.

They were all dressed in their uniform, looking as sleek and as professional as ever.

As the group started dancing to the tune, the looks on the dogs’ faces weres absolutely hilarious. To say that they were quite confused is an understatement.

Then the video jumped to the next clip where 13 dog handlers started dancing to bigger moves. No wonder they had to exclude the dogs for a bit.

With their synchronous dance moves, it’s easy to tell that they took the time to do some practice.

Talk about dedication.

The video showed them dancing in different locations—from an open field to a park to an empty room, they were ready to dance it all out.

Then, the exciting part came now that the dogs are back in the game. Each dog handler showed up with a dog to groove with them.

Best believe the doggos were either bustin’ some moves like their handlers or just sitting there being all cute and confused.

They were absolutely entertaining either way. One of the dogs understood the assignment and danced while standing on just two legs.

Some of them showcased tricks.

Watching it can instantly make anyone’s day brighter.

It was perfect.

Each dog played with their respective human.

Although they may not understand what the challenge is all about, it was easy to see that they had the most fun during the filming process.
