How do I go about training Ruckus to stack? By time I started working at the kennel all the puppies already knew how to stack and they were just 3 months old. So thats one thing show dog related I dont know (not saying I know it all of course!) at the kennel we just put our fingers together over there heads. we run our fingers together and say "watch it" and boom, they stack. I try that with Ruckus and he sits down. well, of course he would he doesnt know what I want of him. How do I should him what a want? And getting him to actually stand strait is proving a problem.
