  • Tuck up!!??!!

    Does anyone know of a website, dvd or anything that someone is demonstrating how to place the tuck up right??? Thanks in advance.

    Normally the tuck up is located under the last rib, unless you are trying to move it to make a dog look longer or shorter. Does that help at all?

      Don't have an answer for you, but it would depend on the breed and the individual dog. You can make a long bodied dog look shorter with the right placement for that particular dog.

        Chris talks about it in depth on the POodle DVD she has through LesPoochs...if you are talking about a poodle that is the best reference I have to offer.

          I agree it depends on what you are trying to hide or show---but anyway, I learned it from Jodi Murphy's Schnauzer DVD---it has stuck with me ever since. I still struggle with it, but before I just thought the tuck up was the flap of skin itself, I never knew I was "moving" a tuck up around, lol. She demo's it on pretty much every DVD of each breed, and shows what moving the tuck up too far back does---it makes the dog look like a dachshund!
