PostSubject: cow hocked   Sun Apr 29, 2012 5:03 am

I noticed my 5 months old puppy to be slightly cow hocked. I fully intend on showing him (first time for me) so I hope it's just part of the "puppy uglies".

What are the chances of him growing out of it?
And when (if at all) should I start seeing improvement?
If he does not grow out of it, can I still finish him or is that a deal breaker for most judges?

Hi yes they can grow out of it with time and patience try to stop him standing on his back legs when possible and they do say walking him uphill can help strengthen backends and inprove hocks !!!
