We had a collie with HD and have been terrified our GSD will have bad hips. She's 18 mths and getting hip scored in a couple of months at the same time as getting spayed. She comes for short runs on the beach but we're careful about the ground she runs on. It's just to put our minds at rest and if there's any problems found we can manage it from early on. Our collies bum didn't wiggle and he looked in perfect health so he came running with us from when he was 2yrs. By the time he started showing signs the damage was done. For a while I thought our GSDs bum wiggled too much but was recently told by a professional that she had great movement and conformation. I think we can over think things and panic too much.
