Thanks for the info. I looked them up and ordered Ammo a new collar lastnite. I can't wait to get it!

lhczth He needs a longer upper arm (lower part of the shoulder above the elbow) and then the scapula (upper part of the shoulder) should slant back more.

Kaiser2012 So should his shoulders be angled more, hmm, forward then to balance him out? (Hips angle back, shoulders angle forward...correct?)

lhczth The impression of a soft back is because the back looks slightly dipped to me in the photos.

I would have to see him in person. A lot of time when a dog falls onto their forehand it is because they have a flat withers, but he doesn't. It also can be due to a dog having more angulation in the rear than in the front, which he does.

Just realized I needed to proof read my critique. I meant "....falling on his forehand WHICH indicates...." and not "....while..."

High withers, but they go into a back that looks a bit soft. Good position and length of croup. Very good angulation in the rear. His coat is making it hard for me to visualize his shoulder, but looking at the movement photo, the upper arm could be longer and the scapula is very upright. I would like to see firmer pasterns. He could have a bit more masculine head, but I don't mind his color. His eye color fits him, nice set of his ears and good expression.

In movement he could use more reach and is definitely falling on his forehand while indicates a lack of balance in his overall structure.
You are awesome, thank you! I get migraines so I understand how frustrating and tiring any sort of headache can be. I hope you are feeling better (and staying warm).

Just a few questions. ..

What is a soft back?

What would make him more balanced (I'm not sure I've heard the term forehand either) ?

Kaiser2012 Thanks to both of you! I was worried he had tight shoulders (not sure what the proper word is) but now that he's older it seems he has a better reach when gaiting. Yay!

jocoyn I wish I had enough knowledge to truly impart some. Handsome dog. I think I would like to see more angulation in the back but once again, the comment of someone who is "trying" but does not know enough to count.
