The Best Dancing Dog (Video)

By Lisa Spector, Canine Music Expert, Juilliard Graduate, and co-creator of Through a Dog’s Ear.

The combination of music and dogs is something that always intrigues my interest. How could it not? In addition to being a concert pianist and a musical canine freestyle student with my dog Sanchez, my love of music and dogs grew into the development of products that help improve the lives of dogs. In addition, I fell in love with Zumba (an exhilarating, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-partyTM ) a couple of years ago and became a certified instructor in 2009.

Consequently, I sat mesmerized as I watched this video. In addition to the fun, intricate steps the dogs is taking on her rear legs, her enthusiasm is contagious and her tail never stops wagging. And talk about balance! I wonder if she takes pilates too! Thanks for posting your thoughts on the video by adding your comment below.

Wow is all I can say as I was watching this. Amazing, I enjoyed it.

As long as animals don't endure cruel training methods then it's great fun to watch.

It's all about the interaction between the pet and its owner. Is the pet having fun? Yes is the owner having fun? Yes, then all is well when everyone is happy including the viewers of these amazing clips. Thank you for sharing.
