I mentioned AKC ....never knew there was a UKC...briefly read about it....briefly. This UKC group has an event called Squirrel Dog Championships...talk about something my pooch does without any direction!
From a brief glance, this UKC looks to be performance oriented and rather interesting..... I like the idea of "total dog".

UKC is a lot of fun, and it's a little more moderate and easy going as well. Since the have the "total dog" concept going they don't look for as intense extremes like AKC would. We compete in ukc lure coursing and dog diving already and have tried out weight pull a little. I really like the venue as it's a little more newb-friendly. and of course I like that they want dogs to "work" or "perform" just as well as they show in the ring.

Wild Wolf Definitely go for the UKC show ring, he is a super pup... basing that on the photo.

SuperG The Colonel has been promoted to General !!!! Looking good ! Not that I know a thing about conformation but the line created by the back of the neck and the back of the ears is perfectly straight....I assume that is quality...but..what would I know?

DJEtzel Thanks!

That lateral movement of his back left didn't seem nearly as prominent until I saw the picture later. :doh: I will have to pay attention to that for sure.

I thought maybe his pasterns were a little soft, but I wasn't sure. Anxious to see how that may change. His turn of stifle (is that the proper wording? ) has looked better, so I'm hoping that changes a little bit as well with age.

First GSD puppy I've stacked so I'm still learning!
02-11-2014 10:50 PM
Xeph The stack overall is actually very good. The only thing you need to watch (and I do it too, sometimes) is that the extended leg is stretched a bit laterally from his body. Pull it straight behind.

Nice layback of shoulder, a bit short in the upper arm and perhaps a bit straight. Flat withers leading into an arched loin, which I would like to see straighter. Croup is of decent length. Could be a smidge longer and less steep. Good tail set, nice and low.

He has good bone for his age. Knowing his father he's going to be very moderate in all aspects. Pasterns a bit soft presently, but he's 16 weeks. He maintains good feet in spite of the pasterns. I would like to see more rear angulation. Not a ton...just a slightly deeper bend of stifle and a bit broader thigh.

He looks to have good planes on his head from the side. I'd say he needs to be more masculine, and I would like "more", but honestly, I find most puppies to be kinda "Meh" in the head region at this age.

DJEtzel Lol yes, his tail is wagging. No idea how to stop that.
