Question Show stance?

I was just wondering, how do you train a dog to do the stance. I'm not really sure if that's what you call it, you know the way show dogs stand. I just like how it looks and thought maybe introducing it to Oreo even though he's not showing.

By the way, he knows how to sit, down and beg now! And also the basics Ah-ah and Leave it. Yey! He is now working on stay and paw - more to go!

Okay, i just learned it's called stacking and saw some videos. Anyhow, tips on how to do this on a lhasa pup? Best age to start as well.

Teach your dog to “stack,” or stand squarely and still. Some breeds are free stacked, with the handler standing in front of them while the dog watches the handler and stands still and alert. Other breeds are “hand stacked” with each leg manually placed in position while the handler stands or kneels close to them. Figure out which one you need to do and be consistent in training.
  • Sometimes with wiggly dogs it’s easier to stack them on blocks, boards or bricks that are elevated a few inches off the ground so the dog learns to trust where you set his feet and feels secure with your placement, but if he moves his feet on his own he becomes unbalanced.
  • Never scold, but be firm. You want the stacking experience to be positive and consistent but not scary for your dog.
  • Front legs should be straight (or as straight as is allowed for your breed) and should be under the shoulder blades. Rear legs should be vertical from the hock down (for most breeds, most notably different is the German Shepherd Dog, who has a distinctive stack).
  • Feet should be facing forward, unless contradicated for your breed.

Hi bunch!

Thanks for the welcome greetings!

Just said hello in the Introduction thread as you asked for.

Actually I live in Brazil

By the way, how can I configure the site to notify me by email when a thread that I'm part of has a response?

I just saw your message because I accessed the forum again today. Otherwise wouldn't have noticed it.

I'd be glad to put the information I provided whereever is better for you.

thanks!

Hi Juan you need to go to the top left hand corner of the main Index Page and click on 'UserCP' ... then scroll down to 'Edit Options' ... in there you need to find where it says 'Messaging and Notifications' - under this section look for where it says 'Default Thread Subscription Mode' ... then look to the right of this and you will see a box - alter this to 'Instant email Notification' .... scroll down and click 'Save' right at the bottom of the page.

You will then be notified by email when you receive replies to your threads/posts
