Have you ever seen a youtube video of dogs dancing with their people to music and thought, “I wish I could do that?”
What you saw was probably Canine Freestyle.
What is canine freestyle?
Canine freestyle is a choreographed performance set to music that demonstrates the training and relationship between a dog and its handler.
An Example of Canine Freestyle:
Canine freestyle requires both dog and handler to move gracefully to the beat of the music, performing intricate movements with precision and artistry. The handle cues the dog with a combination of verbal commands and body language.
