They're keepers!


I have a question. Sometimes I see puppies "stacked" in the 8 week pics, but they're standing on two pieces of wood, with a gaping hole in between, and not on a table.... why is that?

Some folks like to use helpers...either four wooden platforms or two longer wooden pieces to train their pups to hold a stack.

Basically the premise is, if they fiddle or move they will fall off...LOL. I think. I have never used them myself..but it seems that's the premise.

Small short exposures...on those blocks will show the puppy where you want their feet to be. For larger pups you put them on the floor. It's I suppose like a sort of target training?

Now I do know of folks who overuse them...as with any training tool...leaving them up there for grooming etc is to me...not nice. But I have seen that.

It places their feet in the correct position and they don't move (cuz they don't wanna fall through the hole.) The width that you set is the width for them. Builds muscle memory.

There are variations on this (four soda cans is one).

Mine do have to learn that the table ENDS lol. I do allow them to discover that while I am there to catch them. Fear in that instance can save them...I never leave them on a table unattended but I have seen some dogs LEAP off grooming tables, noose or not, or fly off the judging table and run around a show loose, and that is FRICKING TERRIFYING...

I like mine to learn the table is not scary...but the DROP off the table should be respected. So I hold them while they nose over the front or back up up up to the edge in back then say WHOOPS! WHAT HAPPENED? OMIGOSH!...and reward them with praise or food, etc for staying on it.

Morgan was one who liked to leap off tables as a pup. It took three times before she learned to look and rethink the idea. I was able to catch her all three times, but she was quick!
