Tucker is 8-1/2 and I've noticed he's been shaking more often than usual lately. He's done this since he was a pup, but very infrequently back then. It's usually a back leg, or one of the front legs, sometimes his head. Healthwise, he checks out 100%.

Just wondering if anyone else has an older dogs that shakes? Our friends' have a Jack Russell who's 14, and he's been shaking for awhile now.

I noticed that every once in a while, Mitzi's (9 1/2) back leg shakes when she is sprawled out on my lap. Also, she doesn't seem to be comfortable in one position for a long period of time...moved around several times at night. She still runs and swims with the rest of them.

Champ and Buddy both will have a front leg shake now and then. They are almost 3 (Buddy) and almost 4 (Champ). Seems to happen more often with Buddy around the house, but when Champ is waiting for that darn ChuckIt to release his ball, he will have the leg tremors more often.

Now that you mention it, that's usually when it happens. When he's sitting and waiting for something. Like everyday after work, he follows me to the bathroom and will shake, knowing he's going to get a walk. His back legs tremble after excercise, usually.

Hmmm. Interesting.

The only time it ever happens with her is when she's in a sit, but she's pretty high strung and anxious. I've mentioned it at the vet and she checks out healthwise, so I think that's probably what causes her to shake a bit like that.

Only when I get the stick out and even then I can't always see it because they are cowering behind the settee .

My Boston's whole body just quivers, but hers is usually with excitement, like SQUIRRRRRRRELLLLLS..
