According to Sandra Roth, Lizzy the collie doesn’t just repeat choreographed moves but actually develops new moves with each performance.

The level of synchronicity in timing from both of them is really impressive! Apparently, dog-dancing has become a relatively popular sport in Germany, and has been called the “fastest-growing dog sport” in the country.

Dog-dancing not only shows the skills of the dogs and dancers, but also highlights the bond that they share.

Roth has been a dancer for over 20 years, but when she heard about dog-dancing, she was thrilled to incorporate Lizzy into her routines.

Lizzy has been learning tricks and freestyle moves since she was a puppy. But we’ve had many problems and she was not an easy dog, so our main focus for the first 3 years was on her social behavior and not on dog sports. [She] gets more and more confident and our relationship has improved a lot.

She is also starting to enjoy the attention by the audience.

Sandra and Lizzy are enthusiasts in a competitive sport known as “dog-dancing,” wherein people and their furry pets perform choreographed dances set to music. “There are no compulsory movements or elements, so each team can present their individual strengths and skills,” reads Dogdance International’s preamble. “No other dog sport offers that much flexibility to … adapt each performance to the capabilities and needs of each team member (dog as well as human).”
