How do dogs walk?

Did you know all dogs step with their left hind leg followed by their left foreleg. Then they step with their right hind leg followed by the right foreleg, and so on. Interesting trivia.

He's calmed down a little from the wild man of the first week to just a sweet and playful pup now. Still doing the bitey thing which I do not like! Have to finish reading that article you posted today!

Yup. In horse terms it's called a "broken pace".<g> (the pace is when they move with both legs on the same side together, like a harness horse pacer) Horses (except for gaited ones) walk left rear, right front, right rear, left front.

Hey Kathie just realized he couldn't be missing a foot , because dogs don't have feet. Don't mind me, I think the reruns of the royal wedding are getting to me.

Hmmm. That's sure not what it feels like when you're on them... I'll have to think on that.

Maybe you're thinking about them running. Maybe that's different. What is unique about Havs , has to be their gate or bounce. Not sure if I read where it is unique to them only or not.?
