To start teaching a dog you want him/her to stack, you usually
-first just teach a stand command
-then a stand/stay

I prefer free stacking which means the dog stays in the natural stand, but part of stacking can also mean you are manipulating the dog into the exact position to show them off the best you can.... though this is also done to try and hide some faults/imperfections.

Most dog with great structure needs very little if any hands on manipulation IMO once they knwo what you expect of them since the stack in all essence is suppose to be how they naturally stand.

A good judge however will pick up on that and see them any way when a dog is moved around the ring :)
