UKPoodle, Thank you for posting that video! I was smiling at the start, then grinning, and then I started laughing by the last couple bouncings. I can just imagine if my dog were to do that on a walk everyday, I'd spend my whole walk laughing and not able to stand straight!

PuffDaddy, if you can video sometime, I'd also love to see it! I've seen a Spoo in our neighborhood bouncing once next to his dad as they walked home at night, but the dog was more vertical in its posture. My two girls can bounce but tend to do it like gazelles, in forward motion, or when running at high speeds and on a collision course with another dog, they'll not skip a beat nor change direction - just add a giant leap at the right moment for the other dog to pass under them.

When Hugo is excited we are home he will jump straight up in the air because he isnt allowed to jump all over us lol. Also i dont knoe if anyone elses pup does this but when hugo is playing fetch, ball or toy, he will run towards it like a bullet, then when he gets about a 3-4 feet away he will jump and spring forward and then take a few more running steps before grabbing it lol

It sounds like Gracie has the exact same move in relation to hunting instinct. Puffy's bounce looks a lot like the one in the video, but he does it silently and then he freezes and points.

It doesn't happen all the time, just randomly, so I am not sure if I will ever get it on camera. It always takes me by surprise!

He also does the move where he pounces while chasing the ball. I know that this is also a predatorily thing. And then he "kills it" with a quick shake.

My poodle does the exact same thing! I call him "Hopper" sometimes as a nickname because I swear he's like a little jack rabbit!
