The Internet just got a lot cuter, thanks to explore.org's newest puppy cam.

The philanthropic media organization teamed up with Bergin University of Canine Studies to launch several live, high-definition cameras to follow a litter of puppies that are being trained to assist children, veterans and others with special needs.

The puppies are lab and retriever mixes, a breed selected for its intelligence and helpful disposition.

Viewers can observe the service-dog training practices developed by the university's Assistance Dog Institute, which is the only accredited academic institution in the world dedicated to advanced canine education.

"We've witnessed firsthand how animal-related causes can catalyze powerful communities of supporters," Courtney Johnson, explore.org's social media manager, said in a news release. "We're excited to partner with Bergin to provide dog lovers with an educational opportunity to view the service-dog training process."

The puppy cam will be live Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. PST.

The canines' training sessions will be broadcast in January.
