Critique please, self-stack

OK, I think Singe is finally getting the hang of self-stacking.
He's 1 year and 1 month old. He has his first conformation match next weekend, trying to prepare for our first show in the spring.





I know his front feet are 2 far forward in the first pic.

very balanced dog , just bring the front under the body more , straight line down from top of shoulder blade.
he is bridging and is actually taking away from the nice front that he has.

carm, yeah, we are working on that. We were out selling girl scout cookies and we were working a bit. He's better if I hold him, obviously, less likely to move. I think he does it on purpose when I step away to take the picture. When he's good, he's very good. When he's bad, he's a giant pain in my rear...

Maggie we're working on getting him to place his feet. It also works well to get a good placement when doing fronts. "feet" to remind the dog to be watchful of where he puts his feet. Kind of like "front end awareness"

carm, yeah that is how I do it. He just tends to move shift if I move away to take a picture. He is decent as long as I am beside him, holding a good stay, but not when it comes to pictures.
I know that I need more work than he does, thats for sure...

That is a great looking dog you have there!

Awesome pigment, great angles in his whole body. Good angulation.

Does his upper arm look a little short to anyone? I'm still learning that one.

His front feet could be tighter?

He a handsome dog tho.

Love it!
