Understanding CORRECT pit bull conformation and WHY it is correct


Take a picture of your dog from the side and front. Your dog must be standing naturally - not put into a position. Have the camera as level with the dog as possible.

WRONG: not straight on enough. You should not see any part of the dog's body on a "front on" shot. WRONG: dog's head is being pulled back by leash, otherwise ok. Dog is standing naturally the way SHE does.
RIGHT: the dog is standing naturally, head is not being forced back or up. Watch the tail - if it is tucked or down the dog is stressed and may not be standing naturally. Camera angle is low and straight on.


Takes two people. One steadies the dog, the other crouches down with camera. The one steadying the dog should toss a pebble a few feet in front of the dog to get it to look ahead. Camera operator should click as SOON as the dog looks good - you wait - dog will move! :)
