Well, alisa even told me to work on his top line when he was getting ready to be shown. It's a tad too "bumpy(my best word..)" right before the tail? Like I said, nothing extreme..just a slight slope would look much better IMO. You would see what I mean if I posted a photo.

OP, M and D are right, sorry about how I worded my response.

I certainly don't want to answer for A, but what I'm gathering is she wanted to strengthen his topline to smooth out the flow into the croup. Did she ask you to work with stairs/small jumps? Feel free to post a photo...this is how we all learn.

yes we ALL know our own dogs are the best no matter what anyone else says.

but to learn.......you have to listen.............to.....EVERYTHING.
ok, i am starting to freak myself out now...........too deep for a monday morning.

I need to listen to chuck more.

iceman......i was thinking the same.
I agree with you 100%. Someone should always listen to everything said and try not to take it personally. I chalk it up to a learning experience. Sadly not everyone does the same. Most do not have realistic expectations of their dogs when entering into the show world...they've got to be taught.

Yep, that's exactly what she said. Don't want to take away from someone else's thread....there is a thread of photos/video from the show Prime was in. He was originally sold to me as pet quality and he's neutered now and just doing sports. It would look more aesthetically pleasing if the top line was more flowing.
