Ok, I will try and get a video next time we go out walking.

Another thing I meant to mention is she doesn't do it when walking round the house, only when we are out

I struggle writing on a forum lol.

I'm only looking for some advice, stories, insights anything really.

My 9 month aged twists her right leg outwards when walking, from her lower leg, not the hip. It doesn't happen with the left leg, she has no pain, no problem moving, jumping, running and generally acting like a lunatic.

I was advised it is a possible weak hock or long metatarsal due to growing fast, so looking to see if any one has had this is their gsds and how it turned out.

She is working line, not show line and hasn't been spayed yet

roberskine85 Anyone?

Rear right leg has a twist to it when walking, and occasional nail scraping on floor due to the twist.

Just hoping someone has seen this before and has any ideas?

I've been told my gsd has a weak hock on the right side, I'm just seeing if anyone has had experience with this and how/if they managed to deal with it.

It's hard to tell in pictures, more when she walks.
