  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

The Kennel Club has announced a ban on 'degrading' routines and tricks following a rise in the popularity of dog dancing.

When Pudsey the dog triumphed on Britain’s Got Talent, it led to a surge of interest in the little-known pastime of dog dancing.

The animal’s performance, ­ pirouetting on his hind legs and weaving through the arms of his 16-year-old owner, Ashleigh Butler, prompted other owners to have a go with their pets.

But some of the dance moves being attempted have so alarmed the Kennel Club that it has announced a ban on certain tricks.

Personally I don't like to see any animal dressed up in clothes, or doing so called party tricks.

I agree. Dogs are dogs. You should like them because they are dogs, not little fuzzy humans who poop on the lawn. Respect an animal for what it is, in my opinion.

Embrace the impossible.

I agree with the Kennel Club.  Their Twisting is cute and harmless but their Foxtrot is degrading and usually ends in tears.  (specially for the fox)

I agree with everything banned excepted the 'degrading' by dressing the dogs up part.

I don't think a dog feels degraded wearing a conservative costume because they are not human and do not feel human emotions.

I think they feel emotions as a dog lover I do but I don't think embarrassment from a sparkly vest is one of them.

I think I'll stick with my dogs party trick... He's always high-fived, and now does it to the command "What up" like on How I Met Your Mother :P

Although he can stand on his back legs for quite a while. Never asked him to do it, he just likes to see what I'm cooking

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking. Racing around to come up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older. Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
