I'll use any collar I need to I guess. I have Fursavers, thin leather slips, and a thin rolled leather martingale.
We are usually allowed to bait in UKC. I've never had a "no bait" judge; I've had one that allowed using bait but not actually feeding it. He will stack and lean for bait but he tends to lean more forward than stand tall if that makes sense?
He's pretty tough with a pinch, doesn't respond to a pinch as far as self-correcting, so if he leans back into a pinch he's only going to lean back more (oppositional reflex). I've used a pinch for directional corrections (example: to get a better sit out of motion I used it and corrected him *forward*). Just putting a pinch on him and having him lean into it I don't think is going to to anything.
If I can I'll try to get a video of me stacking him so you guys can critique, it's too dark out today though.
