If there's one thing we at HuffPost UK Comedy love more than funny animal videos, it's funny dancing animal videos.

So hoorah for Direct Line's 'Do The Pet Step' contest - which has been launched to find Britain's most talented dancing dog or cat.

Click play on the video above to see clips of some of the contenders - and find out more about them (and their owners) in the behind-the-scenes footage below.

And when you're done, go to the 'Do The Pet Step' website to vote for your favourite, watch more videos and even upload your own. Well, your four-legged friend deserves to be an internet star too, right?
