Dog Display Show

The Canine Freestyle Team is a group of three of the top handlers in Europe who have won more advanced classes in Competition than any other group. Their dog display show has travelled the country from Cornwall to the Orkneys with their 8 dogs performing at many events and have also become recognised internationally as judges and presented their excellent training seminars both at home and abroad.

What is Dog Dancing?
Canine Freestyle, sometimes known as Heelwork To Music, is a sport for those who love dogs and music. The dog and handler team choreograph their performances to a variety of music, illustrating their training and joyful relationship. Watch for the dog moving to the beat of the music, you will see graceful and intricate manoeuvres performed with precision and artistry. Every movement is accomplished through the subtle use of verbal cues and body language.

The freestyle dog display show is also an excellent discipline to illustrate the conformation and movement of the dog. The reach, drive and beauty of an athletic, trained dog moving to music can take one’s breath away. The Canine Freestyle Team won the Crufts Canine Freestyle and Heelwork To Music Finals at Crufts in 2008, the largest dog show in the world. Again in 2011, Kath from The Canine Freestyle Team won the FCI World Championship for Heelwork To Music in Denmark with her 5 year old Border Collie.

One team member with her Crossbreed ‘Spice’ won the Canine Freestyle Competition and another with her Working Sheepdog ‘Fly’ equalled this by winning the Heelwork To Music Final. Furthermore, handler and ‘Spice’ represented England in the International Freestyle Dog Competition beating ten other countries including Germany, Denmark, Finland, Belgium, New Zealand & the Netherlands. Between them, they qualified all of their five dogs which represented 25% of the total finalists places. An incredible achievement for these accomplished training buddies!

The Canine Freestyle Team and their talented dogs have given sensational dog display shows throughout the UK and Europe. They have also travelled to Israel, Japan and USA to promote the sport further. They have performed in a production at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and made many live media appearances: ITV ‘This Morning’, ITV ‘Brilliant Creatures’, ITV ‘Animal Road Show’, Channel 4 ‘The Richard and Judy Show’, Channel 4 ‘Faking It’, BBC ‘Blue Peter’ and local radio stations.

Standard Length of Performance: 2 x 30 mins sets.
