Admit it: You sleep with your dog, you talk to your dog, you even bring home gifts for your dog.
But would you dance with your dog? In case you didn’t know, dog dancing is a thing. One woman makes videos of herself and her wiener dog dancing together.
Dogs can be taught to dance just like they are taught other tricks, like sit and stay.
It just takes a lot of time and patience to do it. Emily and her dog have been working on it for a while now, and the bond they share helps make them great dance partners.
Emily posts the videos on YouTube to not only show off how well her dog can dance but also show others that they can teach their pets to dance, too. The best thing about dancing with a dog is that the dog doesn’t care what kind of music you use, as long as you have plenty of treats.
Emily and her dog, Henrietta, aren’t the only dog dancers around.
There is an entire organization built around this hobby. The Musical Dog Sport Association even hosts workshops and events for people who want to give dog dancing a try. According to its website:
“The mission of the Musical Dog Sport Association is to advance the sport of canine freestyle and to share the joy of the canine/human bond achieved through positive training, enhanced by the artistry of music and choreography. Created by freestylers for freestylers, MDSA defines Canine Freestyle as a dog sport in which training, teamwork, music and movement combine to create an artistic, choreographed performance highlighting the canine partner in a manner that celebrates the unique qualities of each individual dog. It is built upon the foundation of a positive working relationship of a dog and handler team. MDSA is proud to continue the tradition of growth and exploration of this new sport. We look forward to working in harmony with all as we strive towards our common goal to bring the wonder of canine freestyle and the joy of the dog and handler bond to even more people.”
