    DefaultDoes my pup walk funny?

    Ok so I've noticed ever since Toby was really tiny he had kind of a weird walk. When he was really young i thought it might have to do with him being really small and learning his movements, but he is almost 3 1/2 month now and it's still there. I've had comments like "oh thats just means he is going to be a really big dog" or "its just his personality" but what i fear is that it might be a symptom of hip dysplasia. Here is a video of him walking. You can see that his belly sways side to side and his butt goes in the opposite direction. I don't remember ever seeing a dog walk like this before. Does anyone have any comments! A concerned mommy wants to know!

    Puppies walk like that. Perflectly normal. I call it an alligator walk. My 5-1/2-year-old still walks like that at times and he hips have cleared OFA.

    Your puppy is too darn cute!

    Buck did that too and sometimes still does. He also kinda shuffles around the house when he is being lazy.
    I got all sorts of worried and when he turned 6 months I made my vet do some xrays. His hips look fine. I will have them evaluated again when he is older. But I had to get them checked out now for my peace of mind..
