What is the gait? [ View Answer ]


There are many domestic dogs on the beach. While their tracks usually belie their carefree existence, you can sometimes find good examples of classic gaits. This one provided a nice example of a rotagallop. Note the LF-RF-RH-LH pattern in a shallow C arrangement.
