Best way to put dog in a stack?

7 month old, hardheaded mule dog. How to get him to hold a position for pictures - any suggestions? I really want to post for a critique but cannot get him to hold the position after placing him into it. He starts shaking his head and wiggling around.

Three people. 1 to stack the dog. 1 to draw attention in the right direction. 1 to take the picture.

I either have someone help or I setup my camera and use a remote. Puppies I stack on a high table with a non-slippery surface, so there's really nowhere for them to go.

Three people. No wonder I've been failing. Maybe if I stack, husband does camera, and oldest son draws attention it'll work... I'm sure you guys have been doing it for a long time so you have it down. Thanks for the tips. I like the remote camera idea!

I can usually do it with just myself and my husband. Once my dog is trained, I take pics by myself.

I can throw a ball or toy on my own, so I always find the third person unnecessary lol

I think that stack looks pretty good, you just have to angle the camera more to the left.

Thanks for the advice! I'll try to get another picture when it's sunny again.
