This is the third time Dappie is entered to OEC. First time in Prague she had to stay at home because she got pregnant, in Burgum Holland she got injured during the warming up, so I hope the third time we can show our new fairytale routine. When she's not dancing, Dappie is working as a Search and Rescue dog looking for missing persons, and her other job is working as a guard dog, her favourite hobby is Mondioring. She also loves agility and frisbee. She is very smart and likes adjusting the routine to her own preferences.
After comepeting in all the OEC's from 2011 with my shepherds, now it's time to rock with a small dog. Dinges came accidentally in our household, and soon we fell in love with this fun loving, loud and enthousiast little dog. Next to freestyle she is a practical tracking dog and also very fanatic at agility competitions. We wish to make the crowd and judges have fun during our first OEC performance!
Clips and I practice Dog Dance since 7 years, every day in joy and good humor. Apart from a great complicity with my dog, this discipline brings me every year a lot of fun when choosing music, the creation of the choreography, as well as the creation of props and costumes. With the Dog Dance, my Husband and I travel a lot and have many friendships In Europe. I have a wish : practice this wonderful discipline still many years.
My name is Rachel and this is the first start for me and Be Harley (short Harley) at such a big event like the OEC.
I love this sport and I am a fanatic concurrent but also love it to watch the others. The first time I did Dogdance was with Felcie, my lovely Bernersennen girl. To create the different routines with her broth me lots of fun. Today I am going further with Harley, my four years old Schapendoes girl. She always brings me to laught.
I am really looking forward to start at this OEC.
I wish all of you the best and look forward to meet Dogdancer from all different countries.

Marianne 51 years old – Qatla is 5. We are compteting in HTM, freestyle, agility and rally obedience. The Music here is a medley of two children songs in Norway: First part is named Good morning Norway is about getting out of bed and being happy – the last part is about maybe the king will come visiting and preparing for this
My name is Connie Lobsgaard and I am 49 years old. I have a Chinese Crested Powder Puff, which is 3 1/2 years old. We compete in Freestyle and Rally obedience.
Dina is a relocated dog, and she became a member of our family when she was 8 months old. She came from a caring home, but she had lack of experiences on her own, which made her extremely anxious.
After 6 months I started to know Dina's personality, and she turned out to be a hard working dog with great eager. Luckly she also likes to get attention.
9 month ago we started training Freestyle for Jessica Karlgren. Her advises and a lot of excercise made us progress, and now, give us the opportunity to participate in OEC 2016. Then we will get a lot of competition- and environmentaltraining.
Dina and I still have a long way to go, before we can assert in such a big competition, if ever.
The inquiry make me proud, and I'm looking forward to represent Norway.
My name is Cecilie Torp and I'm 39 years old, I will compete with my German Shepherd, "Äiwo", in HTM. Äiwo is 4 years old, and has through the years trained in many different dog sports, such as IPO, Rally Obediance and Obediance. We started to practice HTM for instructor Jessica Kalgren about 9 month ago.
It has been an exciting journey. I love HTM, but it is challenging to perform Drama while I have to give instruction to my dog. We are competing with our "Viking routine" I'm realy looking forward to enter the ring, and just having fun with my dog.

Marianne 51 years old – Qatla is 5 years. We are competing in HTM, Freestyle, agility and rally obedience. The song Rumba With Gunn is made of a Norwegian Group named "Di Derre" and the song is about a little boy who is in dancing class because his mother wants him to, and now the Girls are told to find their partner. He feels like a tiny boy and heæs partner is a big girl – and he feels helpless and must hang on. The song ends by saying that he hasn't been seen in Dance class since that dance
It will be our first OEC participation and probably the last because of the age of Baly. But it is a very good ending for our dogdancer's carriere.
We started dog dancing 3 years ago. We are motivated by the relationship between us obtainened by dog dancing. It's so fun!
I am very happy and proud to participate in this international competition.
I practice the dog dancing for 10 years in my Kennel club of Saint Vrain, near Paris in France.
