Well, I can give you a good example of poor conformation.

Leo has a very straight, upright shoulder, and a short forearm. She also has a narrow front and tied in elbows. The end result is very little reach in front, and an overall lack of agility.

Dumb question - "upper arm"?
I can't for the life of me tell the difference between a steep, short, long, etc. upper arm when looking at pictures in the "Critique My Dog" section.
Can someone post pictures of dogs with "desirable" upper arms vs. steep/short/whatever upper arms? And maybe draw points on the pictures, since I don't really know where I'm supposed to be looking?
