Meet Lizzy, the dancing dog and her partner Sandra Roth. Dog-dancing is taken to its height, and no display is better than this one at the Open European Championships in Heelwork to Music and Freestyle 2014, held in Stuttgart, Germany.
Sandra Roth is a ballet and jazz dancer with a passion for dogs, so moving into dog-dancing was natural for her and turned out to be the perfect sport. As for Lizzy, her dancing companion, Roth writes in her profile that “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.”
Together they perform a beautiful duet. But such beauty does not come easily. The two have spent many years perfecting their dance, and as they performed “The Unicorn,” their dedication shows. It literally takes your breath away, especially when Lizzy does her front-leg-crossover. Whether you are a dog lover or not, you will be in awe.
I can’t believe a dog is capable of doing this kind of stuff. If you watch Lizzy closely she matches every single step her human makes!
SHARE your thoughts on the performance, but first, SHARE the love, pass it on.
