Yet another stacking question!

I have no intention of showing Stark, mostly because we would get laughed out of the ring, but I would however like a photo of him stacked.

I have tried on my own, with my sister and still no luck!

I can get him to stand and stay but I just can't get "the look" I want or should be getting!

Is there a video somewhere that can teach this step by step in a "stacking a GSD for dummies"?

Re: Yet another stacking question!

i agree we need an instructional video. I've seen that thread listed above and while it is helpful a video would be even better.

Re: Yet another stacking question!

Agreed!! Video makes it easier for me cause while I can visualize what is being said, I am one of them peeps that can mess anything up so would have to see a vid to get it somewhat right.

Re: Yet another stacking question!

Okay, so here is my first attempt.

The red lines indicate what I need to do (am I right?)...



His front legs need to be under him more I know, but what about the back? Do they need to be brought forward?

Yes, but just a little. The back hock should be straight up from the floor. Then the foot closest to you should be right under his hipbone.

Re: Yet another stacking question!

I think the problem with the front is that the treat is so close to his face he's pushing back/posting a bit. If I need to be with the dog, I usually throw the treat or the ball out front.
