J-S Pups Day 43: Six Week Stacks

 We began stacking our Rockstars when they were five weeks old and here are the six week stacks.  The purpose of stacking or making the dog stand in a specific stance, it to to see all parts of the dog's structure to determine if he follows the standard of his breed.  When a dog is shown in conformation shows,  the dog is stacked so that the judge can lay "hands on" the dog and examine him to feel his bone structure and muscular condition.  We stack the dogs to get an idea of their conformation each week with the final evaluation at eight weeks.

 The pups love the cream cheese we use to help them focus and stand in place.  The stacking blocks are another tool we use to teach the pups to stay where we place their fee.
