But have you seen or heard of dog dancing?

It’s also called Musical Canine Freestyle.

What you are looking at is a mixture of obedience training, tricks, and dance. This allows dogs and their owners to display creative interactions for the audience and judges.

The competition has several variations in different countries around the world.

The duo dance to music called “White Wolf Spirit” by Paul D. Beats.

It’s definitely what she’s going for. The only thing missing are the forests and the mountains.

Dogs and humans do need to reconnect with nature from time to time.

A viewer named Charese Pelham commented,

“Fabulous dog. Fabulous trainer. Even more fabulous relationship between the two of you. That dog gives you his all, his love, mind, heart and soul. The love and trust between the two of you is obvious. God bless. You are an incomparable pair.”

Imagine the time it took for Jessica and Storm to perfect this.

Jessica executes a few poses with her axes, switching directions while shuffling her feet to the rhythm of the haunting music. Her dog follows her lead, Storm feeling like a real wolf this time.

He’s such a good boy!

Whenever Jessica moves delicately using her feet, Storm begins prancing on his paws, as if he and his human are one. Impressive!

“Unbelievable…every year their routines become even more fantastic! Though I have never had a Border collie (I have Goldens), their brilliance never ceases to amaze! Thank you for such an extraordinary example of how one bonds with one’s incredibly amazing dog!” says another viewer.

Storm is so cute and Jessica leads the way, almost as if she’s calling for rain or protection from an impending threat.

All in all, an impressive unique dance, no wonder Jessica and Storm got the gold. The dance worked!
