It could be the first symptoms of hip dysplasia, so it would probably be a good idea to have your dogs hips evaluated. If it does turn out to be hip related, early intervention with supplements, good nutrition and moderate exercise can be invaluable in mitigating the progress of the dysplasia. And in the best case scenario, finding that the hips are fine would set your mind at ease.
