First Stack Attempt...

This stacking thing was more difficult than I anticipated. Everyone on this board makes it look much easier than when I tried it for myself. Well, here's my amateurish first attempt…

Please critique and I’ll work on improving my initial attempt. THANKS!

Stack Attempt...



Head Shot...

Forgot to mention he is an 8 month old, unaltered, WGSL male. He’s just about 27 inches tall and currently just a bit over 80 pound. Thanks again.

Got shot for your first one.
With his front leg closest to the camera it needs to be slightly further back so it is even with the other front leg
His back leg closest to the camera needs to be stretched further out about 1-2 inches, and in turn the inside back leg the same amount back.
JMO though
I think he is a lovely pup, he looks like there is a slight nick near the wither but this could be because of his front leg, it also makes his croup look very short and steep
Love the tightness in his back feet

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

I would say that's a great shot for the first time!

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear."

4TheDawgies and Istie--Thanks so much for the comments. It took me so many tries before I got anything close to what looks like a stack. Your kind words are encouraging for when I make another attempt at it in a couple months.
