Question My pups bum wiggles when he walks....

I have grown up around GSDs and other dogs but Finnick is my first pup to whom I have sole responsibility! (I know, I know....GSDs aren't for first time owners). So far we are doing really well though! Crate training is going great, he has learnt "Sit", "stay" and"down"...only 1 accident in the house since we got him last Monday! He's so calm and placid. He's just lovely! We will be going to puppy playgroup and training classes when he can get out and about.

However, I'm so paranoid about hip dysplasia is it normal for his bum to slightly have a wiggle when he walks? He's so clumsy (I know all pups are), he lays down a lot, but I honestly think that's due to him being lazy! We're off to get his second jabs next week so I will get the vet to look his hips over....but I just thought i'd ask you guys if you think it's normal for his hips to wiggle? Other than that, I don't think he has any lameness.

Thanks x
