Did you ever see the show Soul Train?
It was a television show back in the 1970s where dancers with the grooviest moves would boogie non-stop to the best music of the time.
We called it “getting down with the boogie” back then 🙂
Well, today, I want to show you how YOU can dance and “boogie” with your dog!
It’s a trick called a figure 8.
To do this move, you stand with your feet spread apart and use your hand to guide your pup through and around your legs in an “8” shape.
This trick is such a fun way to be active and bond with your furry best friend…
Plus, it can help you BOTH flex important “mental muscles” through memorization, problem-solving, and focus.
Here’s how you can teach your dog to “boogie down” with you.
Little tricks like these are not only fun, they also help the two of you expand your shared vocabulary…
And create wonderful memories together. So give this “doggie dance move” a try — it’ll be totally groovy 🙂
To you, and your best friend,
Thank you for the fun idea of dancing with my dog!
I LOVED your advice about teaching your dog how to boogie!! Great idea to get ME moving as well as teaching a new trick! Thanks and I’m def going to start today.😄🕺
Thanks for the fun tips! Right now in Minnesota, the snow is soooo deep that my pups can’t get out into the yard to really play. So inside play time is very important to keep them stimulated and happy. Sometimes I just need a little motivation, too! This is helpful.
My dog has a heart murmur and the doctor has him on Pimobendan 5mg
Must take 1/4 of tablet for 15months only and after that let It take its course and he might go into congestive heart failure. He is a pomerranium
Please advise me so he can live longer.
ASAP is very well appreciated
