small yogurt cups work great for training a stack in little guys... but in bigger pups a table is not oing to be comfortable...

start by just teaching hte dog to stand and stay
then start moving the back foot... you put in in place say stay.... one second click treat... the pup will start learning to leave the foot where you put it... once he gets the idea move two feet... stay.... once second click treat... and start extending the time he has to stay put... then move to three feet and then four etc. once the pup has the idea it should go pretty quick....

the happy feet things work pretty good .... I have a set that I dont use... but the yare a good start ... talk to your trainer at class they may be able to help you get the pup into a stack as well

One thing they taught us in class, is if your dog is on the ground and you are trying to keep him from sitting, put your foot under his belly, he can't sit or lay down if your foot is there.

We have a lead and collar that we ONLY use for conformation. It makes it easier for Kea to switch from obedience mode (and the automatic sit!) We are also just finishing up a 6-week conformation class that has been tremendously helpful. As a newbie to conformation myself, I found that I needed more of a foundational class as opposed to drop-ins at our local dog "school". I also trained hand signals for the stand both from the side and from the front. She seems to understand my communication attempts much better that way! She's almost 2.
