DANCES WITH DOGS

In January 2009 Dances With Dogs competitions and titles were instituted by the ANKC. Dances with Dogs competitions provide handlers and their dogs with an opportunity to demonstrate a skilful, choreographed routine, performed to music. Dances with Dogs encompasses two separate divisions: Dances with Dogs Freestyle and Heelwork to Music.

Titles include Starter, Novice, Intermediate, Advanced and Champion in each of the two divisions. Titles are written after the dogs name and designate by initials the appropriate division e.g. a dog having been awarded Intermediate title in the Dances With Dogs Freestyle division would have DWDF.I after their currently designated name. In the case of  a dog achieving Champion status in Heel To Music this would be designated by the initials HTM Ch in front of their name and if a conformation Champion would be designated Dual Ch (HTM) in front of their name etc.

 

Full details and applicable rules can be found on the ANKC website.
