I don't know anything about stacking GSD's (sorry) but I had to compliment you on his color. He's got an incredible red tint to his sable. He's gorgeous!

When the stars threw down their spears,
And watered heaven with their tears:
Did he smile his work to see?

Did he who made the Lamb, make thee?

Looking good. He was cracking Kiersten and I up at the Mondio trial. He's got such a great personality.

Thank you! I love his personality so far, he tries really hard to do things right. But of course, puppy brain has different plans sometimes lol

What a beautiful dog! Can I ask how you're teaching to stand in the stacked position like that? I'm having a REALLY hard time getting my girl to bring up the one foot without sitting completely. Do you have a trick to it, or just practice, practice, practice?

When teaching him to stack I don't focus on teaching him the leg position, I focus on teaching him to not move his feet, even if I manipulate him. We started out very basic with a leash and a treat in front of him. If he held his feet still, he was heavily rewarded, if he moved out of position I'd just say "Nope" and reset him. Praise a lot while they are holding still, and when you release them to move don't make a big deal out of it. Once he's doing well I just started moving on foot at a time and rewarding him from not moving it from wherever I put it. We were able to move up to all feet pretty fast though.

Going to have to try that tomorrow, hopefully it works!
