Dances with Dogs

Dances With Dogs

Despite the title of this fast growing sport it has nothing to do with dancing, but plenty to do with music. If you can walk with your dog you can enjoy heelwork to music. If you love music and enjoy time with your dog then this is the sport for you. Handlers have the opportunity to develop and utilise their creative skills, and to train and showcase their dogs in a unique way. Dogs are kept active which improves their fitness as they develop greater flexibility. 

Workshops are open to anyone who has an interest in dancing with their dog. You may be a beginner, unsure how to start, or participated in previous workshops and would like to polish your dance routine(s). Perhaps you need help with your choreography or some new moves in your routine.
