Berlin 9-10 months [critique]

This is the closest I have to a 'good stack', I know its terrible, but I have no help right now. The photo IS slightly angled, due to the way I was holding the camera. I know the other front foot should be hidden, and the legs should be straighter, and his other back leg shouldnt be turned outward.


Another, I dont like it though because I feel his coat makes him look fat here. But he self stacked nicer.



Face




I do plan on showing him this summer, so honest critique please, and any way I can improve is appreciated. He is 69lbs, and 10 months old.

That is an absolutely gorgeous male! The long hairs always have a fiery mane which looks so good! A true prize.

Yes he is! I think the second photo is better Katie. It doesn't make him look fat to me.

I think it makes him look more solid. His chest looks good and so does his hindquarters.

I'm not a breed standard judge though, I just know what looks good to my eye, and Berlin emptomizes the GSD to me.

Thanks to the both of you for the very kind words! Michael, I am glad he doesnt look 'fat' in the second picture to someone else. I am just paranoid about that because every one thinks hes so heavy, and much bigger than he is...but its just all that fur. He is very lean and is beginning to put on some nice muscle in his hind legs.

Any critique is welcome..

Photo from today, it's not the best, but it is the first REAL stack I have of him. He needs to be stretched out a bit more, and the front legs straighter, and his head a bit higher. But it'll do. Any critique on stacking position, and on him is appreciated. He's 10 months old.



One from last week, not a stack.


And another recent one, again not a stack.

Katie you may not have gotten any response from a breed judge because it's difficult to tell what's going on under all of that beautiful fur.

I think he looks great though. I hope someone is able to respond. I'd like Lisl critiqued too one of these days, but her fur is not as long as Berlin's.

Yeah, I know.. his fur is outta control at the moment. Hes blowing coat, plus, I shoulda brushed him before I got the picture.

Thanks again Michael. I'd love to see a stacked photo of Lisl.

Great looking dog. Very difficult to see his structure thru all that hair.

He's very handsome and he looks like a big boy! How much does he weigh?

I brushed him, so he looks better now.
