Did you know that every breed moves with a distinctive rhythm of its feet? The cadence of each dog’s foot timing is discernible in the ring during the side gait, when breed type is set in motion—and structural faults are revealed. One misstep could cost your dog a win, but a smooth, effortless footfall is sure to get noticed for all the right reasons. In this episode, Lee and Dan discuss how your dog’s foot timing can sweep the judges off their feet

The show is simultaneously broadcast EVERY Wednesday at 3:00pm on Facebook & YouTube.
