Default Critique Zefra @ 21 months

Would love a critique on Zefra if anyone feels up to it.

21 months - Spayed female
23" at the withers
60lbs

I am not sure which stack is better; I tend to prefer Zefra stretched a bit.





Head



I have better photo's but she isn't in a stack in any of them (thinking for colour/pigment).

Thanks all!

I don't have the knowledge to critique, but I got a big smile as I scrolled to your last picture....She looked like she's ready for whatever you want to do....

Thanks all.

Yes, this girl is ready for anything.

@ x11 - yes, we train in both schutzhund and agility. She has also participated in SV confirmation and has her HIC. I try to get involved with as many venues as I can with my dogs. She will be trialing this spring for her BH and hopefully IPO1 (and possibly 2).

i am glad (for myself) that my intuition based on a pic was consistent with the actual dog. i am glad for the dog that you are doing cool stuff with her. question do those different venues make it harder to train yr dog ie the classic cross-training dilema.

I have not had any issues with training with Zefra (other than my newbie handling skills - only been working dogs for about 3 years or so).

I believe the dogs know what is expected in each venue, especially if you lay a good foundation.

Don't have a critique presently. Sorry you had to spay Zefra. Thought you were planning to start breeding with her (although my memory could be incorrect)

She was to be used by her breeder but things happened and I spayed her to keep her with me instead. Big long dramatic story that ended well.

Not that I had ever shown a dog-but she looks better than a G to me
