Picture #28a


Again, the first picture shows correct ear set which, along with the width between the eyes, also clues you into the width of the skull. The second ear set shown is down the side of the head and often is the result of poor placement, though occasionally it's due to the dog not using its ears. Be sure to physically check the width of the backskull as this head can look broader than it really is. Lower left picture shows ears that are closer together and usually on examination the backskull is narrower than desired.

The dog in the lower right picture not only has ears closer together but also eyes that are too close, usually this dog will have an overly refined head. Except for the last picture on this page all that was changed was the ear placement.
