Critiquing a long stock

I was just wondering is a long stock can be critiqued in a photo or does the fur camouflage too much of the dogs structure?

Structure is structure....the coat cannot hide true structural faults.

Believe me, I know that....Kacie is a conformation nightmare~but I love her!!


In all fairness, she does have an enlarged elbow due to injury, so her easty-westy and weak pastern on the left leg is from that.

Coated dogs have their own classes now under the SV 2011 rules.....so yes, now they can be shown in the German Conformation classes for Long Stock Coats.

depends.....in AKC, long coat is a serious fault but it's not a disqualifying fault. Coats can still be shown. Probably won't win tho!

I showed my longcoat bitch once, back when a class placement ribbon was needed in order to go for certain parent club awards.

Long coats do better showing in IABCA shows versus AKC shows. I show Nyxie in IABCA - she has another show coming up in May and one in July that I am entering her in.

Actually, the long coat is only listed as a fault. Not serious or otherwise

But would you find it harder to critique one in a picture? Can you really get a good look at the overall structure like with a stock coat ?

The Dip In Withers thread is what got me thinking about it. To me the minute the dogs gets any kind of curly coat going on near the base of their neck it can look like a dip.

I'm not planning on bringing one into the ring, it was really just curiosity. (But I am happy to know the lc is no longer a fault)
