Critique Kaiser, 1 year

Kaiser is 1 year (and 1 month today!) so I figure its time for an updated critique!

This picture is a reverse self stack that I shot while he was stalking Dakota. Its the most updated "stack".

Here is a shot from front 3/4 (sorry he's a little sandy).

Here is his serious face (his muzzle looks much more masculine when his mouth is closed...though I do love his many goofy expressions)

Here is a stretched stack (I had just had shoulder surgery, so I had to take what I could get) taken exactly 1 month ago (on his first birthday).

It may be because I "know" him and can put hands on him, but most pictures show a poof of fur above his rump that seems to break up the topline, but in reality that really IS just a poof of fur that will lay down as you follow his spine. He is in great shape and is super fast. I can't wait to see what we can do with him in that regard (flyball, agility, etc). I wish just for a moment he had short hair (but not forever, because I'm oh so infatuated with the long coats!) so you could see the muscles in his hind legs...I'm telling you, this boy is ripped!

Dang I missed the cutoff to edit!

He is 80lbs and 25inches tall (if I measured him correctly). I've had many people comment that he is the fastest "big dog" they've ever seen. He is so much more agile now as compared to his younger months.

He's a very active boy. We don't train every day, but most days he gets to run around at the dog park (we are usually the only ones there). On those days I'll mix in a little obedience along with his games of fetch. The rest of the time he plays with Dakota in the living room. If there were more dog-sport related activities near me, we would be much more active!

I'm really no pro but I'll put in my .02. I think he has good withers, nice top line. I personally really like his croup, don't know how close it is to the standard (I generally really don't like what most consider a good croup on a GSD, I think comparing him to other well put togther working dogs that he has a nice croup as it short and relatively straight.) I think he has a nice amount of angulation in the rear. I really like his front, looks like he has decent upper arm and good shoulder layback. Also has very nice pasterns. Overall I think he looks balanced and athletic

(I really don't know the GSD standard that well, I like an athletic dog that looks like it can work.)
