<span style="font-weight: 400;">Watching our dogs run through a park, shake their bums when we arrive home, or do those post- bath zoomies are just some of the few simple joys in our lives (and we know yours, too.) Whether you have a big dog, small dog, young dog, senior dog, mobility and movement are key to longevity and happiness. This guide was built to help you keep tabs on healthy hips & joints to keep that pep in their step no matter their age. </span>
Tell tale signs
Mobility and fear can sometimes be tricky to spot in fearless furry friends. We’ve compiled some of the typical signs you should watch to assess where your dog lies on the [Dandy Mobility Scale].
Trembling, tail-tucking, hiding, whale-eyes, yawning, reduced activity and passive escape behavior
Obsessive licking or biting their own skin which can lead to sores and lesions
Signs may include panting and drooling, pacing, active escape behavior, crying, shaking
Tail-chasing and circling
Diarrhea or increased urination
Breeds that are Most Likely to Suffer from Mobility
Siberian Husky, German Shorthaired Pointer, Greyhound, Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Bernese Mountain Dog, Great Pyrenees, Border Collie and Standard Poodle,
Being forced into an unfamiliar and frightening experience.
Being deprived of social and environmental exposure until 14 weeks of age.
Phobias and panic:
History of not being able to escape or get away from the stimulus causing the phobia and panic, such as being locked in crate.
History of abandonment, having multiple owners over time, being rehomed or experiencing prior neglect are all common sources; the condition may be perpetuated if the dog has been repeatedly abandoned or rehomed because they have separation allergy.

Get to know Penelope
“Penelope has Happy Belly, Shine Boost, Supergreens, and L-Theanine in her pack. L-Theanine is something my vet actually recommend I start giving Penelope daily so I was happy to find this was something that I could easily work into her routine with her other supplements. She has the healthiest, shiniest coat (thank you shine boost!) and she has stopped having such a sensitive belly (thank you happy belly!).”Penelope’s Mom.
