Talking Critique Hachi please! :)

Here is Hachi a 10 month old GSD. I have clicker trained him in the past few weeks and it has been going great. He is dirty in this pic bc he has flopped and everything outside all day. I"m gonna give him a bath after I post this. I accidently posted in General info. I'm still explorering this site
I tried taking the best as i could LOL at 10 months its hard to get him to hold still long enough for the camera to take pics. LOL I love him though.

It's really impossible to give a good critique with these pics. If he will not stack, at least get him standing naturally (looking forward) with you perpendicular to his shoulder (not taking the pics from above).

What SHE ^^^ said.
He looks quite 'stocky'.

Try tying him to something, so that you can get a good 8 feet away from him. Then throw a ball, so he stands alert, and get a side view of him standing with all four feet on the ground.

It's easier with two people, then one person can sort of stack him and the other can take the photo.

The other thing you can do is just hang out in the yard with your camera acting casual. You just might catch him stacking nicely all by himself. I have gotten some of the best stacked photos of my pup this way!

That's how his body shape should look when he's 10 YEARS old, not 10 months old. He is way overweight and not in good shape at all. He needs to get on a serious diet ASAP.

He looks like a senior and he's just a puppy.

Love his legs, nice and sturdy, not birdie legs. Nice looking dog too, especially in the sitting side shot.

@ Lucky dog, He isn't overweight. I had him weighted at the vet the other day and he weights 70lbs. I asked if he was overweight and he isn't considering he is very tall like Whiteshepherd say he is leggy. The vet averaged him to be around 110 to 115lbs by 2years old. I don't overfeed him. I only feed him 2 cups of dog food mornings and a cup in the afternoon. I think i personally watch his weight too carefully.

Actually I didn't say he was leggy , I said his legs looked sturdy. (as in nice bone, not too skinny, not overly long and lanky for his age) But, I don't think he looks heavy either. Looks like he's got a nice thick coat, that can add a few pounds in a picture. Can you feel his ribs?

(BTW, I just sent a picture of our male to his breeder yesterday asking if she thought he'd gotten too heavy. I'm no expert on conformation that's for sure.)
