The dancer is dressed up as a male dog. The dog costume is a dalmatian dog with a red shirt, black shoes, and red sunglasses. He also wears a bone necklace. The dancer's costume has light-yellow fur. Starting with Just Dance 3, his fur is white.
Not much is changed in the remake. However, his outlines are in higher definition.
The background consists of a room with black floor that reflects the light blue wall, which has a blue line at the bottom that fades to black towards the sides, several clouds on the sides and semi-transparent bones that fly from one side to another horizontally.
Just Dance 3/Just Dance: Greatest Hits (Wii)
On the Wii version of Just Dance 3 and Just Dance: Greatest Hits, the room is much lighter, the clouds (some of which emerge from the floor) are more numerous and swing up and down, and the bones are tridimensional and fly in many directions. In the chorus, five teal blue dog pawprints light up whenever barking sounds can be heard; they disappear in the verses, where two other pawrints light up on the sides of the screen whenever "Hah, ho, yippie-yi-yo" is sung.
Just Dance 3/Just Dance: Greatest Hits (Xbox 360)
On the Xbox 360 version of Just Dance 3 and Just Dance: Greatest Hits, there are much more bones, which are now in shades of blue, in 2D and with a thin black outline; they get bigger whenever barking sounds can be heard, and some of then fly in front of the coach. The room now has a thick blue line at the bottom of the wall and in front of it (similar to the Just Dance version), which has a light blue music spectrogram in the chorus; besides, white pawprints fade in slowly in random places on the floor, and the clouds are much bigger and move to the right slowly.
The remake is based off the Wii version of Just Dance 3 and Just Dance: Greatest Hits. At the beginning, the screen fades in with a dog pawprint silhouette transition that goes from left to right. The room is darker and with a light blue circular gradient in the middle of the wall, the bones have a more tridimensional effect and the pawprints on the wall appear more quickly and are more luminous. At the end of the routine, the same fading transition from the beginning is used.
There are 3 Shake Moves in Just Dance:
Shake Move 1: Swing your arms up and then down. Shake Moves 2 and 3: Quickly bring your right arm up and your left arm up consecutively. Shake Move 3 is done for a longer time.
All Shake Moves
Shake Move 1 in-game
Shake Move 2 in-game
Shake Move 3 in-game
Starting with Just Dance 3, there are 2 Gold Moves in this routine, both of which are the same:
Both Gold Moves: Bend your elbows and shake your arms fast.
However, on the Xbox 360 version of Just Dance 3, the song is not covered.
Throughout every game the song is featured in, there are a few changes in the lyrics.
In all the games, the first letter of some words are capitalized for an unknown reason.
In every game after Just Dance, the lines "Infested mongrel", "It’s part of the Party", and "Oh doggy hold it" have an exclamation point at the end of the line.
Before the remake, the first time "A doggy is nuttin’" is sung, the lyric appears as "Say/A doggy is nuttin'".
In every game after Just Dance, the first time "Oh doggy hold ya’ bone" is sung, there is no space between the words "ya’" and "bone", making the line read "Oh doggy hold ya'bone".
In a few lyrics for Who Let the Dogs Out? in Just Dance 3 and Just Dance: Greatest Hits, there is a full stop at the end of the lines, making them read "Who let the dogs out.". This only happens during the second, third, and fourth times in which the lyrics are sung. In the other times when it is sung, it says “Who let the dogs out” without the full stop.
This only happens on the Wii version of both games.
Before the remake, a few lyrics read "I tell the fellas"/"Start the name callin’". In the remake, this line is written as "Until the fellas"/"Start the name callin’".
The Just Dance version has a lyric that reads "Walkin’ Through the place that/Digi-Man is breakin’ it down?". Before the remake, the question mark is gone, and there is no space between "breakin’" and "it", making the lyric read as "Walkin’ Through the place/That Digi-Man is breakin’ it down". In the remake, the word "That" is gone, so the lyric reads "Walkin’ Through the place/Digi-Man is breakin’it down".
