That puppy had flat withers. The other photos you posted are good withers. Eros', IMO, are the least correct since it is the same height as his back before his topline breaks off and starts to curve down.

High withers. They could flow a hair more smoothly into the back, IMO.



I got tired of going through photos so Klodo will have to do. VA1 Bodo also had correct withers as did VA1 Eros Hambachtal, VA Bert Haus Knüfken (who as also very masculine), Lasso di Val Sole.

Like I like the agile look

Yep, I LOVE Bill's structure. Obviously male, but very athletic while retaining the look of power.
And he was 'V" rated.

Bill is built similarly to Koda's father. (:
Of course, Koda's father probably had a lot more faults.

I can try to get in touch with her breeder for one. I never got her pedigree from him, which is why she isn't registered. I know that he's a BYB so probably not anybody special lol. I just remember that every time I met him I noticed that he was a lean, athletic lookin beast.
I'll have a pic within the next few days if the breeder responds to the old email I have (don't know if it is still correct). If not I'll stop by his Ga home (he is usually there during the Summer/Fall) and visit to get a pic. I'm sure he'd appreciate seeing Koda again as well.

I do not know much about conformation either, nor do I think my dog is the ideal, but here are some stacked/movement pictures and critiques to help you out. I always enjoy reading critiques and looking back at the dog to try and see what the experts see.




Critique courtesy of qbchottu

I think he is a bit overstretched in the rear which gives him a slightly hocky look so I would try to minimize that next time. Good muscle, but I like my dogs very thin and ribby so I think his structure/definition would show better with a couple less pounds.
A more recent stack (lost weight, got in shape, appears more alert, and was recently groomed down)



A silly picture, but it shows him from the front and his earset


Gaiting a little too enthusiastically

From Robin/robinhuerta (the close coat was a result of me going overboard with the undercoat rake )

More coat would even make him look better.......nice dog...congrats!
And Lisa/lhczth

Very good angulaton in front with a nice long upper arm and very good angulation in the rear. Good bone, pasterns and feet though he looks like he toes out a bit on the near front. Good color though his tan could be a bit richer. I would like to see stronger secondary sex characteristics. My biggest criticism is that he is long (stretched).

In movement he appears to have tremendous drive off the rear and reach in front. He also looks balanced. He does hunch up a bit during movement which explains, in my mind, what I see in his topline (and why I only gave it an OK).

When he moves, he moves a bit more like a dog with flat withers. I don't really know how to describe what I am seeing and, of course, what I am seeing is based on a shot in time.
Two additional gaiting pictures from the past - a more easy going, "casual" gait

Rei- Thank you for putting both of those together!!! I did keep an eye on the second critique of him (after the weight loss) due to curiousity, but I hadn't seen the first one. Pretty big difference that weight loss made! I think he's very handsome though.
