Christmas Photo Fun #9

Yooper Paws Christmas Photo Fun: Lassies Dancing

Dancing can be another great way to burn energy both physical and mental. It can also help to strengthen your bond with your dog which will bring about better obedience. 

So what is dancing with your dog? This varies greatly depending on the size and breed of your dog. So for this day's challenge, the goal is to have fun and show off your dog a bit at whatever level they are at. 

Smaller breeds tend to like dancing on their hind legs. Often then can move forward, backward, spin in circles, etc. Larger breeds tend not to enjoy the fancy footwork that small breeds do. My shepherds tend to get mad at me if I ask them to spin in a circle more then once or twice. But large dogs seem to be really great at competing in Free Style Dancing with, sometimes, elaborate routines that are designed to link multiple commands that are either given verbally or thru body language. 

Azul loves to dance by moving between my legs and moving with me. 
Watch this video to get an example!

However your dogs dance, have some fun by moving together and share your photos or videos to yooperpaws@gmail.com
