I laughed when I saw this dog on the dance floor, but then the music started. I was so wrong!

If you’re like me, you’d suspect that having a dog as a dance partner would be a bad decision. But in this quick video, you’ll meet a well-trained golden retriever dancing merengue better than most people.

When I stumbled upon this video of a golden retriever dancing merengue, I couldn’t believe it. The dog is wearing a dance uniform in addition to knowing all the proper moves.

In a way, the dance is just a complicated version of follow the leader. However, the golden retriever is able to do the moves while on her hind legs. Amazing!

Compared to other dancing dogs I’ve seen, the merengue dancing pup can actually move quickly and stay in time with the fast Latin beat.

Did you enjoy this video? Let us know in the comments. We’d love to hear from you!
