    1. Thank you Jodi!

      It is just a term meaning to place your dogs feet in the best position to show their top-line, angles, shoulder, etc. I found this definition that may help,

      Stack

      To cause your dog to stand in a manner that best displays it’s virtues. In most breeds, the dog’s forelegs are stacked in alignment with their withers, and their rear pasterns are squarely aligned and presented at a 90 degree angle from the floor. There are exceptions by breed i.e. German Shepherd Dogs, etc. One may “Hand stack” their dog by manually placing each foot in it’s best position, or else “Free stack” by using a hands free method of using bait, verbal commands, body language, or lead correction to get the dog to stack itself.

      Also here is a link to the AKC listing a full glossary of terms:
