Sandra was already an acclaimed jazz and ballet dancer when she started training Lizzy for a sport called “dog-dancing”. Lizzy was exceptionally obedient and always went the extra mile to learn the intricate routines of competitive dancing. Lizzy’s eagerness to please Sandra soon transformed her into one of the best performers in dog-dancing!
