Introduction

Whether you’re twirling, whirling, leaping, or nearly floating on air, your pooch is right there to witness all the extra effort you put into your talent. They’re always happy to observe, and we love them for that. But there are also ways you can directly include them in your passion for dancing. Today, we’ll offer up some dance-inspired activities that will have your dog dancing, too - in spirit or even in reality.

Here’s a challenge for you! Pull your dog into your routine, and give them an adorable part that corresponds with your sweet moves. Of course, know that they’re going to absolutely steal the show whenever the two of you perform for anyone. We can’t help it. Our eyes are just drawn to the canine having a good time. You might opt to go with costumes or to let them dance in their birthday suits. Whatever you choose is fine with us. We’re just excited that you’re interested in making your furry kindred spirit a part of your dancing world. Best of luck to you both!
Step
1
Practice commands
Before you start attempting to dance with your dog, you should practice commands with them first. A review will help them for sure. They’ll understand that it’s time to focus and perform. You can always cut treats into smaller pieces so that you essentially have more incentives!
Step
2
Take it one step at a time
Don’t overload your dog. You might become frustrated, but they’ll just be confused. Take things a few tricks, commands, and moves at a time. Reward your pooch for good behavior and successful positions and acts. They’ll catch on. They’re so smart, and above anything, they certainly want to please you.
Step
3
Put it all together with music
When the routine is coming together, try adding some music. You may find that your pooch does better without it, and that’s fine, too. But music makes it feel official. Choose something peppy, and keep encouraging your fur child. You can record the dance with your camera or perform it for family and friends.

Hey, after you’ve choreographed that routine with your fluffy pal, consider sharing it with others to raise funds or awareness for a good cause. There are plenty of animal-centered initiatives, struggling families, and other noble ideas out there in the world and probably right in your local community. So, be a helping hand (and paw)! Your talent combined with your dog’s skill and cute factor can go a long way. So, get started today! There are so many unique ways to get the word out and to showcase your human and doggie duo. Trust us: you two are going to be unforgettable!
Step
1
Select a cause and contact them
There are so many animal shelters and other initiatives in need. You have the power to help them, so take the time to make a difference. If your pup is good at dancing, then choose a charity and then make a doggie dancing video. It’ll definitely attract attention on the web. Link to your fundraising campaign. Contact the folks you want to help; they can assist you in getting the word out.
Step
2
Go viral (or try to, at least)
Set your doggie dancing video with a cause out into the world. Let others enjoy the moment and then give toward something that’s seeking to make a change in the community. You might highlight a shelter, club, ill individual, or a family down on their luck. Whatever the cause, turn a bad situation into good. You can make something negative something to dance about.
Step
3
Say thank you
You can actually do this by offering up another dance routine because come on! We want more human and doggie dancing in our lives. It’s the perfect way to show appreciation and uplift someone in the process. Go for it! It doesn’t have to be a long, extravagant routine to be great. The important thing is that people gave their money to help with your chosen charity. Say thanks in style!

This is for one of those days where you don’t have time to prepare, and you don’t even care about preparing. You simply want to get out there and dance. Take your dog with you. If they like to dance along with you, or even if they like to chill in the shade and watch you, then let them tag (and Wag!) along. Get set for a few hours of fun movement, and invite others around you to cut loose and have a good time. That’s what dancing is all about at its core, after all. So much weighs on us daily, and dancing - even simply seeing someone dance - can be uplifting. Make someone’s day (and your dog’s) with a pastime you adore.
Step
1
Select a prime location
If you want your little human and doggie partner dance to be seen, then you’ve got to get out there where you can be seen. This can make someone’s day. They’ll be jogging in the park and then see your routine and be delighted. It’s just always great to see people cutting loose and having fun.
Step
2
Get to groovin'
Play some music and get to grooving. You might do the tango with your pup or totally go wild. Freestyling is all about doing whatever comes to you in the moment. So, have at it. Shake off your inhibitions and have fun. Your dog is really good at doing this, so watch and learn from the ole shaggy pro!
Step
3
Welcome others to join you
When people inevitably stare and even gather around, invite young children, teens, adults, elderly, and other dogs to join in the fun. Before you know it, you could have a crowd of people and pets getting down in the park or on the sidewalk - wherever you are! Now, that would be newsworthy for sure. A community dancing together! What a sight!

More Fun Ideas...

Practice in Front of Your Doggo

Instruct your dog to sit, and you might even offer a new toy or chew treat of some sort. Perform for them. This will give you the added pressure because you’ve got some eyes on you or sort of on you. They’re going to be into that treat, but you’ll be able to execute your dance with an audience right there.

Watch Some Doggie Dance Videos

They’re literally all over the internet. You can get inspired and maybe even research ways to teach your pup some new moves.

Conclusion

They say to dance like nobody’s watching, but we’re here to say just dance with your dog. No matter if people are watching or not, make time to bond and groove with your fluffy kindred spirit. They can sense when you’re happiest, and if you’re twisting and shouting, then they’ll be twisting and howling right along with you.
