Thanks to all who commented! Our little Chihuahua loves to dance and prance but I was wondering whether it was good for her or if it was a practice to encourage.
In general, I think what a dog does naturally is usually not harmful, but forced moves can be harmful if care is not taken - for example jumping and "dancing." That said, I would discourage her from jumping off of elevated surfaces!
You are welcome Donna! I thought you looked familiar and just realized you were my editor for when I worked for a popular website's dog channels! Nice to see you here! Kind regards!
What troll voted my answer down? Really sick of the juvenile behavior on here. I am trying to help by offering my expertise for FREE - why the negative feedback?
That is true - it is a stressful movement for dogs. There is a very interesting video of a dog that dances with a Mexican guy for the whole dance standing on its rear legs. The dog is stressed and not enjoying this.
