Hi today when I was playing with Diamond a six month old German Shepherd with a rubber ring chew toy i was pulling her in a circle to the left and I heard clicking noise coming from her right rear hip,this greatly concerned me knowing it was not normal. We played this game before the pulling and on a rubber ring made just for this game. I tested her walking forward and also tested her mobility of this leg and everything was normal. There was no clicking when she walked or jumped only when she walked sideways in a circle. I also don't see any diffrence in her gait.

Our 3 yr old recently had knee surgery with post-op complications. One thing the surgeon was concerned about was a meniscus tear which sometimes presents with a clicking sound (of the knee) not hip.

Hopefully it is nothing, and if it were me, I'd avoid pulling in the circle from now on, or I'd call my vet and get their opinion.
