My dog's breeder said to think of a noodle...a "dry" noodle is very firm. A "wet" noodle is loose and floppy. To me, a "dry" dog means a dog that doesn't have any excess floppiness like folds of skin, doesn't have really loose ligaments, when the dog moves their movement is very firm and sound. I have one dog I would call "dry", even as a 14 week old puppy he was in a puppy match for conformation and moved very well, no cow hocks, none of that awkward puppy stage stuff.
