canine freestyle or canine musical freestyle, has been around for many years, but was more popular in Europe than the United States until recently. Today Freestyle is performed for fun and in competitions throughout the United States and around the world. In Freestyle dogs dance with their handlers performing moves and tricks that are choreographed to music to create routines. Each handler interprets the music in their own style with costumes and props to enhance their performance. It is great fun and can be done with any breed or age of dog or human.
