How do you know if your dog is show quality? What are the requirements? How young can the handler be? How old should the dog be? Any info would be great!! TIA
Oh yes, pics please. This is one of the best times to see if they are possibly a show potential. Most breeder's will take stacked pics of there pups at 6 wks, 8 wks and more. Some take them even sooner...like 4 1/2-5wks.well the puppy is only 9 wks old, so dont know if you still wanted pics or not. can you tell this early? no, the parents were family pets.
Well the pics you have posted aren't pics you could tell that from. He looks like he has a pretty head and a long muzzle but that all you can tell from those pics.most of you have seen pics of him, and no one has said anything about show quality, so I doubt he is. I was just wondering. HAHAHA
It depends. Sometimes you really have to hang onto them to hold them still. With puppies I put my hand at the base of the thoat, just under the jaw, and right under the rear end. Then whoever is taking the pictures needs to be quick. It's best to have photographer ready before you set the dog up, then click click before puppy goes crazy and wiggles lol.great, thanks!! I will try to get some tomorrow!! How hard is it going to be to get a puppy to stand still like that?lol
Do you want a whole body side profile? Or just face? I will do bothound: dont worry I lose myself ound:
Yes its not easy especially when training babies. Just try to stand the puppy square, like the pic but perhaps one hand holding his throat and one hand inbetween the backlegs to hold him up. If that still dont work, dont worry about holding him just wait till the dog is standing still on his own, try to get a side on profile, or near enough to.
OOOO how cute he looks pretty nice then AGAIN I am not poodle expert if you show me a apbt then thats another story LOLWell here is a side stacked shot of my new boy Sting. I know he's not perfect but I think I may a good chance with him. Tell me what you think?
I want to take a few movement shots and a front and rear stack. He gets a bit excited over bait so that was it for my hand today.
Thanks. Ya, I think he looks nicer in person but thats the best I could get before he took off my finger's. lol His hair also needs a trim. Its so long on the body that it looks like he has no neck. I don't want to overwelm him with the grooming his 1st few days here. He is a sweet heart though and Im already in love.OOOO how cute he looks pretty nice then AGAIN I am not poodle expert if you show me a apbt then thats another story LOL
I will post some of Inzo today , I am having a hard time stacking him.
