Critique

Taking a deep breathe here. I'm new to this, and my boy is not aiming to be a show dog, an IPO3 dog (although we are training, for fun mostly) or a sire. He is my best friend and the love of my life.

That said, for MY education, I would love some knowledgable critiques of his comformation.

He will be 7mo next week and is ~80lbs. He is standing on an incline in this picture but he isn't still often so its the best uptodate pic I have.

Thanks

Not sure if this means no one wants to hurt my feelings that badly or that he's si perfect no fault can be found

Seriously, I'm a horse person so I'm simply looking for feedback as to strengths and weaknesses. I'm not yet sure what I should be looking for. So I won't get upset when his faults are pointed out (unless its downright mean...).

I think they need a better (stacked, closer and on his plane) picture to work with

There are not many members on the board who have the experience to give a proper critique, and proper structure cannot be evaluated without a proper stack. Your dog is sorta standing funny, I bet he would look very different with a better pose and a closer pic on level ground.

Here is a link to give you some guidelines on how to stack:

Post your picture in the Critique section:

Don't worry if you can't get a perfect stack - just do you best, takes time to learn how to do it correctly. And be patient for feedback -

Thanks all...honestly I thought only "show" dogs were stacked. See how little I know? I will check the links out and work on it.. THEN post in the appropriate section (somehow I missed it).

This is NOT true. The slope of the back does not cause hip problems.
