    A little down in the croup, a little straighter than I like but otherwise, I think a nice youngster.

    I noticed the croup too. That's the sore spot in our house... ;D

    He's still young, maybe that will change.

    He's at a pretty tough age right now... seems like his tail set right now is a bit low, and he lacks angle in his stifle and second thigh. He looks like he has a nice front, though... I look forward to continuing to watch him grow. He looks like a nice puppy!

    Although Not familiar with the history of his blood line(from what i recall he goes back to sandylands which translates into quality) i would think that the back will get sorted out with age . He is well proportioned , in relativly good condition and looks well rounded. Only thing - when you stack him try to work on getting him a little more alert (he could have been tired when you took these pics though) . Sometimes the judges will go for the dog that looks more "in to it " then the rest .

    P.S. - How's the research into blood lines and type comming along?

    If you are going to hand stack him vs free bait be by his head - and don't put his tail out. I know some handlers still do that but that's not how you show a lab - I like free baiting the best. Get something he really likes - food, toy - he'll look more alert.

    I agree use a toy or some food. Some use ox liver but I usually use the favourite snack or treat of my dogs. I dont give them that treat for about a week before the show and when they see it in my hand they really show alertness , wag their tail like crazy and look good . Here are some pics from handelers stacking their dogs at potomac.

    She's in Europe, Romania, they may not allow food baiting.

    They probably allow Toys though right (heck even seiger shows allow that) !! i'd dip a small sized ball in some chicken broth overnight (works on my GSD's ) . Luckily Pluto has crazy drive for any sized ball so i dont have to dip it into anything to get him going,The moment he takes a look at it he's up'n'abouts.

    Off topic question, after looking at the black dog stacked...

    When I took Grace to handling classes, the instructor kept trying me to keep the bait low and get her head squared off staring ahead, but she's such a wiggle butt, that my best chance of getting her to stand still is to hold the bait kind of high and get her in a similar position. Is that and OK to show off your dog?
