CanineFreestyle DogWork

Here's a tiny bit of what Boon and I are doing these days in our freestyle training. This is the original freestyle and we don't wear costumes. We take what the dog offers in creating presentations, not what a song dictates or what a human thinks would make good entertainment. We never ask the dog to do movement that they would not naturally do. It's a lovely sport, quite unlike any other. This is not a performance, just some bits from a couple of training sessions.

He looks so relaxed and yet attentive...I think he’s enjoying it as much as you. Dancing with a dog...moving as one....nothing quite like it.
