Why not call your local kennel clubs and see if they offer any conformation classes?

This is a very very informative page, I love it! And I am going to try it out on my little sisters goats bc they have to set them up that way, but a goat or dog that stacks itself is more confident, calm, and will stay that way longer than if you place them in the way you want them. And I also want to click Rosco every time he pricks his ears forward as well, he looks so much prettier that way!

I also set up a shaping staircase for this self-stack

Hope you can read these, sorry I'm a lefty! Lol. First is the starting point, he's standing, then you shape each thing individually, perhaps one to two increments a day. •rear feet in stack position •front feet in stack position •head and ears in position •tail in position •weight centered over forequarters •capable of holding position •Goal!!! stack position

I totally agree with trying to find a conformation or handling class. Hands on learning and critiquing is the best way to learn it in my opinion. I wrote the following for a different forum, but this might help. All dogs are stacked slightly different also depending on strengths, weaknesses, acceptance to being stacked, etc. it's not exactly a "one size fits all" thing.

Ok so you're going to have to stand on the right side of the dog. You use your left hand mainly. Tighten up the collar at the top of her neck. Pick up the left leg from the top and place under her. You want the shoulder to sort of go down to the foot. Give a stay command if known. Next do the same to her right leg, but with your right hand. You have to switch lead holding hands. Switch back. Then go down her back and position her back left leg so her hock is parallel to the ground. Do the same with her back right leg.

After awhile you want to teach that as stand or stack on command.

That's kind of the basic of it. Baiting would be the next thing to explain which is what really sets up the dog to look good and show off.

Hope it might help!
