Is it like he holds it normally then lifts up when he puts weight on a certain leg? If so try to pay attention to which leg he is using when he lifts his head up. If it's like David describes I wouldn't worry, I am talking about a constant up down, up down, sort of walking. If I remember correctly when the head is coming up that is the leg they are lame in.

If you really think he has pano I would take him to the vet to be safe

It means he is relaxed. If he walks head up - something excites or worries him and he uses another tool besides that he sniffs the air - his ears. Show dogs go through a specific training to keep their heads up.

This is what I have come to learn.....and observe.

Sarah~ Eko keeps his head down when we walk, I read that is how GSDs naturally walk, with the head lowered and a sort of wolf-y stride. When Eko had pano and was limping, he would lift his head up and then down as he walked.

No need to worry. I didn't mean limping, but having difficulty walking like being dizzy or off balance. Now for fun - I suggest you watch Maggie's video with Jake - see if he reacts

Mary Beth My Sting will nod a bit when I am walking him. I wouldn't worry unless there are other problems, like difficulty in walking.
