I don't know any links right now for good sites about dog conformation but maybe some of you will get something out of this. It's the best short treatise on horse conformation that I've seen. It seems like people who understand horse conformation have the easiest time learning dog conformation. I don't know if it's like learning new languages (as after the first one the others come easier) or that it's mostly right out there in front of you without a fur coat hiding it. There are 4 parts and illustrations. Few horse breeders and almost no riders understand this stuff. Anyway, this is good stuff-:

Pam and I will be riding down the road and pass some horses in a pasture. The conversation will go something like this.
"What did you think of that bay?"
"Long back,short femur, and small pelvis."
"Yeah but nice front end."
