Freestyle Filming

Teddy and I had a very busy weekend. We watched some of the Teacup Dog Agility Association trial that was local, we went on a therapy visit, and we did a lot of filming for our next freestyle video competition. I thought I would take advantage of having a blog and do something a little different. Below are the two best tapings from the weekend. They both have a couple of minor mistakes, but some of them you probably would not notice if you were not very familiar with our routine. If you have seen us dance before, this is the same routine, but with a little extra time and choreography needed to move up to the next level of competition. I think I'm leaning to one version over the other, but I thought I would get outside opinions on which version is better. So, let me know what you think:

Version #1

Version #2

Thanks!!

Man, that's a toughie- despite missing the very first move, he started off stronger on the second one, but seemed to fizzle a little- the first one, he got the back foot jump both times, but seem to drag at the start. I think I would go with the second one, just because of the stronger start? You've really got some GREAT new moves! I smell a first place!
And, you'll have to tell me which one you're leaning for- I won't tell anyone!

Wow! You two are really getting good at that! I agree the second one had a much better start, but the fizzle at the end kind of turned me off of #2. I'll vote for #1 since he was steady throughout. I love the jump over your back. He's so good at that, you should add a second one in there!

Thanks!! That is so funny that you would each pick a different version! Patti, I'll e-mail you privately and tell you which way I'm leaning. :)

I know nothing about freestyle (other than having seen in on the computer), but IMO you two are SUPER! I'm in awe of all the hard work I know went into BOTH routines! (I do like the little "bunny hop" move - I think that was in the second one, but both routines were super!)

No matter what I try, I can't get number 2 to play. So, I guess number one is perfect!

Theodorable said...

Thanks Ginger! The bunnyhop is Teddy's signature move. I think I need to start calling it the Teddy hop. :)

Theodorable said...

Avalon- Oh no! I'm sorry! I have no idea why it won't play. Thanks for checking it out anyway!

I think I'd have to go with the second, mainly because Teddy seemed more 'with it' in that one. He kinda lost focus for a bit in the first.

I do like it when he goes backwards through your legs and didn't he only do that in the first one?

Also if you could get him to do the 'Teddy hop' longer, that would be really cute, I'm sure that is a crowd favorite.

Thanks Judy for the help!! Teddy does the turn and back through my legs in both. It's great to get outside opinions. I'm a little biased after watching them so many times.
