    Before my short foray into Gordon Setters and now my commitment to Whippets I bred and showed Kelpies originating from the Butterbone and Spectre lines.

    Back in the 90's we would stack our kelpies, however these days most are free stood.

    The Kelpie in the stack above looks to be a KLA Kelpie (back on Windari) of a nice type. I say this because of the two tone shading. And if that's the case the handler comes from show parents and has been doing this since he can walk, his mother has corgi's. (I could be wrong).

    Looking down on the shoulders place feet evenly at the front, (you did this well) with your girl Myf don't stretch her rear end as much as she doesn't have as much length of stifle.

    Kelpies are shown on a check chain and we would gather this up with a hand behind each ear, this would get the head up and show off the arch in the neck, (so rather than stretch out, move the head back to the shoulders and up) which is a requirement, tossing a treat gently out in front about 40cm will make the dog look and have that keen kelpie expression.

    But since this is all for fun Myf go with whatever works for you.

    I should add that the dog at the top was an excellent dog who is behind many many of our dogs - he was a gorgeous mover etc - but I personally don't like that photo

    How do you stack Kelpie puppies? Is it the same way?

    Yes baby Kelpies stack the same. I would be going for free stacking now, even if it's just for fun.

    Hold treat between thumb and second finger and point your first finger. This is now your cue. Hold the treat out so that the puppy has to look out and a bit up. Use a cue word stack, show or whatever.

    If your dog is having a flat day you can also gather the check chain up like you would reins behind each ear and tickle behind the ears, this gets expression.

    I also practice throwing some thing and saying ears as cue, then treat when you get ears.

    For a dog that draws away from the judge I will hold the check-chain in my right hand, lead gathered up with it as well held above the dogs head as though you are carrying a bucket and with just a finger (left hand) put slight pressure on the off-show side beside tail.

    For a dog that is going thru a phase of not liking it's mouth being touched or draws away from the judge (some dogs go thru a phase about 9-10mth old) I ask the judge if they wouldn't mind starting at the shoulder. This seems to break the pattern and relax the dog.

    Occy, what was I right about?
