Oh, yes indeed - it is instinctive to him, as dancing is to humans. But
at three years old, he has reached a standard that is "intermediate" at
best and requires attention from a qualified teacher of Sudden
Convulsive Discouragement (SCD). While eye contact with the barkee is
generally good, his tonguework is very sloppy, especially when going
from first to fourth, and he sometimes changes key at slower tempi. He
also has difficulty in covering partners who move quickly, and the way
he points his nose in the howl is a positive disgrace.
There are other aspects of his behavior that need attention: for
example, when walking with us on a long lead, he has a habit of
spontaneously casting around 1st lady and doing a figure of eight
around the dancing couple.
