Re: How to Stack?

Super explanation and illustration. I might add a couple of things.... From a photographer's standpoint, one common mistake to avoid is the stacker wearing dark clothing (altho in these we have we "knobby knees"

And maybe the last thing when stacking, is to slightly push horizontally just above the base of the tail. I find it tends to "set" the dog if only for a minute.

With small puppies, I find a whirl or two around in a circle in my arms is the secret for getting a very quick stack shot on a table. The only problem is I get a little dizzy myself...
