S-P Pups Day 45: Six Week Stacks
We began stacking our Fast Times Pups (Parker x Savi) 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.
All the pups were naturals and stood like pros...I also think it helped that we had the magic cream cheese!
