How to Check Your Dog's Hips

As a canine chiropractor, I am constantly checking hip range of motion.

Different breeds have different hip motion due to the fact that their lower back may be angled down more towards the ground, limiting the amount of movement they have in their hip.

Normal hip range should be smooth and pain free for your dog. They should allow you to slowly draw the hip back with little to no resistance.
