'Not only is punishment risky, but it also fails to teach the dog an acceptable alternate behaviour. The dog does not learn what to do the next time he is in the same situation. He only learns to fear the situation.' Emma Parsons, Click to Calm p73

I was reading this post about teaching a dog to stack, etc. Might be interesting to you, though I know you don't exactly plan to show.

Most of the info is pretty good, minus some of the punishment stuff.

She's a bit overstacked. Gotta keep those hocks perpendicular to the ground. :)

Looks pretty good, but the back legs are a little too far back, and the front legs are a little too far forward. I've been doing conformation classes with Pallo to teach him to stack and stand-stay for measuring.
