If you check your dog’s pace gait (click to see more) you can check how well they coordinate their limbs. Dogs have different pace gaits depending on how fast they move. The video shows how healthy dogs place their limbs in different paces. Pet parents who have dogs with possible orthopedic issues like hip/elbow dysplasia, luxating patella, ligament damage, spinal discs etc. could check their dogs’ pace gait (click to see more) to spot differences. Dogs that have problems will display a different rhythm and placement. However, be aware that not every pacing dog has an orthopedic problem!
To evaluate balanced body movement we can analyze canine locomotion, the common name for analysis of canine locomotion is “Gait analysis”. During your visit at our sessions you may have heard or will hear us saying more about the movement of your doggo.
