Hi again, everyone. I'm lucky enough to live in a dog friendly apartment building with its own dog run on the property. While Atlas and I were there one day, a neighbor saw how Atlas was running and told me that the vet of her golden (who was 13 and had, I believe, severe arthritis and hip dysplasia) said that the "bunny hop" way of running was definitely a clue to the joints in the hips being worn down, at least for goldens. Her dog ran with a "bunny hop" for all his life, and she just thought it was cute. She suggested I get it checked out, although it could also be that that's the boxer gait, and is different from how goldens run. Atlas just turned 3 a month ago, and he, too has run with a bunny hop from as far as I can remember. Also, watching other dogs in various dog runs, they do, too. How does your dog run? When gearing up for that first *zoom* in a boxer burn, or while chasing around other dogs, do both back feet lift at the same time in a slight hop? (Atlas doesn't do this all the time, mainly it's for gaining speed in a sprint.) For those of you whose dogs do, how is your dog's orthopedic health? Is this something I should get xrayed to check? As always, thanks, all!
