Dog Dancing

Purbeck Dog Dancing

Dog Dancing—also know as Heelwork to Music and Freestyle—is fun for you and your dog.

Beginners Classes run on Sundays. See the Classes Calendar for the next beginners course dates.

Contact us to register your dog for the next course.

Learn how to teach your dog moves such as the weave, spin, twirl, bow and other fun moves. Add a sequence of moves to music – and you have a routine to show off to your family and friends.

This is a great way to ‘exercise’ (for both you and you dog). You will also find you create a stronger bond with your dog.

Who Can Join In?

This popular sport is suitable for handlers of any age and fitness.

The only prerequisite is your dog must obey basic obedience commands (see our Obedience Training Classes if you need help with that).

Although our classes are geared more towards enjoyment, some of our handlers do train for competition. Plus we take part in fun competitions in the classes.

Come and see how much fun you and your dog can have in our friendly dog-dancing classes.
