For Roth, a ballet and jazz dancer with over 24 years of experience, being able to share her passion with Lizzy makes dog-dancing "the perfect sport."
"Lizzy has been learning tricks and freestyle moves since she was a puppy. But we've had many problems and she was not an easy dog," she writes in her performer profile. "So our main focus for the first 3 years was on her social behaviour and not on dog sports."
Through the time and effort working with her owner to master the choreographed dance routines, Lizzy has blossomed.
"[She] gets more and more confident and our relationship has improved a lot," writes Roth. "She is also starting to enjoy the attention by the audience."
