12 Week Old "Hops" Sometimes, Normal?

I've notices sometimes when she's chasing things the rear legs will hop at the same time. Doesn't seem to happen too often, just sometimes, should I be concerned?

First time ever puppy dad! Thank you!

Thanks, I suspect such as well; I just never know, first puppy ever and it's been an over-the-top experience to say the least!

My boy did this, too. After a while, puppy gets coordinated enough to run normal. Easier to bunny hop at first . . . . . hasn't learned to use legs differently yet.

My pup did this too around the same age. They're just getting used to how those rear legs work. She also bunny hopped up our deck steps a little longer. She's 5 months old now and her legs work the way they're supposed to work. No worries.
