I'll have a go at it! I'm from the ASL conformation crowd, so I'm still new to other lines.

The first pic makes his whole head and muzzle look very short, and his front feet appear long with a tad more angle on the pasterns than I'd expect from a working dog. Back is a bit high in the second pic, but nice chest. The bottom of the ribcage doesn't extend as far back into the loin as I would expect... It'll be interesting to watch him grow! I'd love to see his head from the front.

Totally pulling it out of my butt, so take it worth its weight! :P

I am not a judge of this stuff but he looks nice to me, particularly for his age which is often gangly (he is not) . I would suggest more trimming on the nails and would ask for suggestions to tighten up those paws a little.

Thanks! I actually just cut his nails before I posted this as I noticed his nails were sort of long. I do think his feet are alot tighter then they look but IDK. lol

The culprit can be long toe fur! I have a bitch like that. I trim her foot-fuzz a week before we have a show. It's remarkable what a big difference it makes. Combine that with keeping the nails nice and short and you'll see a definite improvement.

I really like your dog a lot. Looks like a real sturdy fellow with great bone, muscle tone and pigment. He is a little long in the front feet and low in the pasterns in the photos. I really like his strong looking back and masculine expression. Keep us posted on how he develops he matures.

I keep Beau's toe fur trimmed so I don't catch it in the dremel and to make foot inspection easier, and even though he is has a normal coat but it can hide a lot of nail as said. It does make a huge difference. If he is used to a dremel you can slowly work them back nicely.

Too funny, I was seeing a beautiful dog and then also got hung up by those long toenails!!!

Once they get long it takes time to get the quick back.

good shots of how the black nail will look when before cutting the quick.

This is my favorite site with great discriptions How to Dremel Dog Nails @ DoberDawn.com

Thanks for the advice guys. I do know how to clip fur and nails and I can assure you his feet are good. Im asking for a critique of the whole dog not advice on feet. I would appreciate if we stayed on topic.

ROBK Thanks alot I will def do so.
