A good GSD is a good GSD. Form follows function. A friend of mine just spent 4 days on the road to attend a seminar about structure and she has never shown a dog and probably never will. I'd guess 95% of the people that post their dogs in this forum do not show dogs.

Is this a serious question? My reply would be, "why do you care? "

I don't have any interest in conformation showing, but still believe structure is important. For agility, conformation is extremely important and while she is the dog I have regardless, I would still like to understand as much as possible about how she's built. Stacking just happens to be the universal way of comparing structure for GSDs.

My first agility dog (sheltie) has a great front, but lacks power in the rear. As a result, she has poor ground speed. Knowing more about how she is built helps me understand her limitations and exploit her strengths.

I am getting better at understanding structure, but still have a *lot* to learn and love hearing opinions from others.

dawnandjr Stacking leads to a nice 'stand' which is required in IPO. Agility, they have to wait on the platform, so even a command to wait or pose would be helpful.

Genetically the pups could only be aw+aw, aw+at, aw+a (all phenotypically sable) or at+a (phenotypically bicolor).
Well, there you go! Can't think of a more convincing reason than that. Thanks for explaining! I'm very inept when it comes to genetics so I appreciate the mini lesson. Congrats on the awesome puppy!

MaggieRoseLee She's BEAUTIFUL! And I can't even stack my 8 m old so great job with that.

Keep the pictures and updates coming. Specially with the agility stuff

Rei Great job stacking her, considering her age! I don't have the knowledge or experience to critique, but do have to say that I love her ear set, head, and think that she has a nice amount of rear angulation

And genuine curiosity - what makes you say that she is a bi-color over a dark black/tan? She looks similar to my dog in terms of color (when he was a puppy) and he turned out to be black/tan. I've heard that tan under the tail and around the belly means black/tan, but black means bi-color? Could very much be mistaken though.

Gorgeous puppy either way, of course!!
