Hi there

My aussie is now 3months old & I would like to start doing conformation shows in 2009. I am not sure how "stacking" works thinking If anyone has some advice I would much appreciate it!

I do agility with my Border Collie & will start with ground work training with Zeus within this month. Will it be a good thing to mix conformation & agility training at the same time? I have NO experience in the conformation field - HELP PLEASEdog

I would also like to know any tips for stacking Aussies!

I have a 4 month old that I'm working with, I've attended one conformation handling class so far.

I've been shown to place a treat on the ground and position the legs to where I want them (but where do I want them?!) and how do I teach him to put himself into a stack instead of me putting him in a stack?

If i put a treat on the ground - there is no way i can get him to stand still & position his legs they way i want them.

She seems to have a lot of experience with showing dogs, maybe she could give your some pointers
