Yes, dogs know what’s best for them, if you watch them and note what they may be trying to tell you. In this x-ray, you may be able to spot the signs of hip dysplasia, a common problem in some breeds. Watch for signs of pain when your dog walks or tries to run.

Is he limping? Unwilling to walk? Does he give you “that look?” Don’t force him to walk if he’s trying to tell you he doesn’t want to. There is a reason for it. A trip to your veterinarian may be in order.
