I know its bad, but try!

I'd like the best critique on his conformation that you all can give me based on these photos. I know how much goes into stacking and I just can't do it, the first is of him just free, or self stacked, its about as close as he gets. I couldn't get him to pull his head up though, I think he was staring at a duck

So anyways, try to critique the dog and not the stack. I know its hard to make hard and fast statements about a dogs conformation without seeing proper stacks angles, and the grass is long yes, just do your best.

How bad or good is it? I've always been curious. If he's atrocious I'll love him just the same, but I'd like to know regardless. haha

P.S>>>His tail is not curled, it lays down just fine, must have been that duck giving him a happy tail...

well thanks guys. I've never been too interested in his confirmation, but since starting schutzhund he's been excelling like crazy, and the trainer said his bite work was better in the first two days than 90% of the german working lines he's worked with.

this meant a lot since he's a member of one of the top clubs in the nation, with 3 of their dogs and handlers out of the 6 in the club going to Ukraine for the WUSV and took 1st and 2nd a couple weeks ago to qualify.

Sooo, with that happening I was really curious as to how he "looked" from a technical standpoint

Can you have one of your Schutzhund club members help you set him up and stack him for good photos?

hmm I could maybe try. I only work with the one member as of now, and as a pure working line guy he's not overly fixated on proper stacking, etc, i'm not sure how interested he'd be in spending time on that just for curiosity sake haha, but I could try.
