Your pup's tail is longer than my adult's tail... dunno how he's going to grow into it, unless the breeder thinks it is going to somehow shrink.Hello everyone
Well I have a 8 week old pup and his tail has been docked but it seems a lil long to me. It mesures about 3" the breeder said he will grow into the tail and wont appear so long..is this true?
I doubt it would be anything more than cosmetic, my sis has weims who have docks similar to what I imagine this is describing. Never seen anything functionally wrong, but on a dobe it would look odd.The other thing I would consider is more speculation on my part, since I have never lived with a too-long dock. I am wondering if sitting will be awkward and possibly uncomfortable if the end of the tail is getting jammed into the ground every time your dog sits.
It's VERY common for tails to be redocked or excessive scarring fixed at the time of ear cropping. I'd definitely do it then if my puppy had any kind of tail problem.Thanks for the replys.....he goes in for ear crop in a few weeks maybe that would a good time to have his tail fixed...he.will be round 12 weeks.....what do you guys think?
