Critique Truman, 6 months old

Truman is 6 months old and half WGSL and half backyard bred. I'm curious what the experts here think of him. Here's his pedigree: Truman von Lumberville

And here are some photos:


Most recent photo





He's just under 5 months here








He's 3 months in this one. He's much slimmer now.

Very cute puppy. To do a critique, though, we need a stacked side view.

Ok, I'll keep working on it. I've read the tips on how to stack a dog, but I've never done it before. Truman doesn't seem to get at all what I want him to do even when I attempt to position him. He keeps wanting to sit. Any other tips for stacking a puppy?

It can help if you have a second person who can hold a toy so the pup/dog wants to stand and look at the lure. I also just lift the dog/pup back into position if they sit and tell then "no, stand".

Thanks for the tips. In the mean time, here's a recent full body shot in case someone has some insights while I work on stacking.
