According to Maya the husky, it’s time to get down to some serious frolicking. This beautiful girl is a gifted athlete, and enjoys doing her own personal best impression of a bouncy-trouncy Tigger from Winnie the Pooh.
According to Wikipedia, “stotting (also called pronking or pronging) is a behavior of quadrupeds, particularly gazelles, in which they spring into the air, lifting all four feet off the ground simultaneously.”
Dogs stot for the same reasons that gazelles do: they’re interested in something, but they’re not sure about actually making contact.
Or maybe it’s just a lot of excitement. Only Maya knows for sure!
