Canine Musical Freestyle is a creative blend of traditional obedience, tricks, and ‘dance’ movements which are choreographed and performed to music. Teamwork between dog and handler is essential. Freestyle routines are designed to emphasize a dog’s intelligence, physical skills, beauty, and fun-loving spirit.
Canine Musical Freestyle is a new and rapidly growing sport. It had it’s beginnings in Canada and England in the 1990s and quickly spread to the U.S.A. Involvement in freestyle can mean participation in live or videotape competitions, participation in fundraisers and public education events, a demonstration at local schools and nursing homes, or just a fun way to keep your dog physically and mentally active.
