Critique Kastle v.h. Basjes Huis

Please critique my pup...and my stack. I've never stacked a dog before so I'm going to post a ton of pics and if you could also tell me which stacks are "better" and why and what to work on?

Here is his face at 12 weeks:


Onto the "stacked" pics...I know the lighting isn't all that great either...He's 13 weeks old now






He moved but I thought it was an ok pic


Here he self-stacked

He's very cute, but you stacked him backwards

The leg closest to the camera should be extended behind him.

Oooppppsss LOL well, we'll try that tomorrow-ish haha

Any comments on his structure beyond me stacking backwards? hehe

It would appear that since I'm used to TAKING the stacked photos, I stacked him the way he should look to me...while the camera was on the other side of him *sigh* lol

I don't know about structure, but also the grass is covering his pasterns, so try stacking on a sidewalk or solid surface next time.

Getting him away from those Daisies will help, too Hard to see his topline.

He's got nice bone, though

I think the sun and background takes away from the topline. Hard to see his structure with the busy background.

Okie dokie! I dragged Jason outside bright and early when it was daylight but the sun was not yet blaring on our house. The lighting for the pics are good (IMO) and I stacked him the reverse way (I'm an idiot). AND you can see his feet He's getting to be quite patient with this!!!

I know his neck is at sort of an odd angle because he's looking at me but there's no way around that at this point without outside assistance.



Please excuse the peanut butter on his muzzle

I like the first of this lot of pics, he is a little bridged but looks good
Lovely bone
I like his front and rear angulation
His looks to have nice tight feet too which i love
i also like his topline
He looks to have good breadth of thigh and nice short hocks
Good luck with him

Love your dog the best you can TODAY, because they could be gone tomorrow

Thank you!!!

Could you explain the "bridging"? Is it the way that I set him up or physically just the way he is?

I really appreciate the critique

No critique from me, but he is absolutely gorgeous!
