Dog dancing

Rhythmic obedience or dog dancing comes to us from England. The goal is for you and your dog to perform a choreography to music with different movements such as turning on himself, walking on two paws, walking backwards, passing between your legs, climbing on your back, etc. 

If you love music and have some imagination, this activity is perfect for you.
Rhythmic obedience will allow him to exercise physically but also to stimulate him mentally.

In order to have a good foundation and to avoid any mistakes that could be difficult to correct, it is recommended to start this activity under the supervision of a professional dog trainer.

You will then have the opportunity to participate in official competitions.


This activity is suitable for all breeds as long as your dog is in good health. However, you will need to adapt your choreography according to your dog's age and abilities. Indeed, some movements require a strong solicitation of the joints or the mobilization of the back or hips.


  • Props and costumes according to your choreographer and imagination
  • Treats that your dog really likes (personally I love cheese! 😊)
  • Patience of course and a positive attitude towards your four-legged friend.


  • In a canine club
  • During introductory courses given by canine educators
  • In your garden or living room depending on its size (once you have learned the basics with a professional)


All year round depending on weather conditions

In summary?

  • You and your dog perform a choreography to music
  • If you like to dance and have a little imagination, this activity is perfect for you.
  • Suitable for all dogs, provided that the choreography is adapted to the dog's abilities.
  • Opportunity to participate in official competitions
