You know the saying, every dog has its day? Well Daril and his handler Lusy Imbergerova from Italy finally had theirs during the FCI Dog Dancing Championship recently and once you see them in action you’ll understand exactly what I mean. Lusy and Daril have been practicing this single routine for months ahead of this competition and they weren’t planning on taking a loss anytime soon!
The organization hosting the event is known as Federation Cynologique Internationale, and the competition is less about actual dancing dogs and more along the lines of looking for technical orders and the dog’s willingness to carry them out. Some acts do indeed dance, others follow strict “training” routines and others are a combination thereof. Overall it’s one of the most entertaining things to watch if you ever sit back and wonder at these other living beings sharing the planet with us.
