Thread: Left right left right

    Left right left right

    My GWP often walks along moving first both left legs and then both right legs instead of diagonaly opposed legs. It does half look odd! I filmed her on my phone yesterday morning but can't upload it cause it says invalid file. Does anybody elses dog do this? Does it have a name?

    I believe its called "pacing" and your right it does look odd, you want to see a horse do it, even funnier!

    Thanks for that Doghound. She does walk normaly too but only about 20% of the time, when she does though she covers the ground at a faster rate.

    Ooops, sorry, early morning reply there.

    I have a GWP and can honestly say that he's never done this. And here he is proving it.

    When horses do it its called gating and it looks pretty weird right enough

    Our gsp bitch does it. tends to be when she is on a mission of some sort. quicker than a walk not as fast as a trot, but they'll cover bloody miles doing it.

    Yes I have three, two do it occasionally and the third does it nearly all the time!!

    For anybody who hasn't seen this before I've uploaded a video in my gallery with my GWP Macey giving a demonstration
