To be honest, I dont think anyone has decided yet! :roflmao: I think almost everyone is unanimous that they dont like the really curly ones which lie over the dogs back. Some people say its due to a gay tail set, but I dont really know enough about conformation to say either way. The breed standard is quite sympathetic to the fact that the ban on docking is fairly recent, so it is pretty open to interpretation and personal preference. As the years go on, I think the breed standard will become more clear.I just dont like how undocked tails on dobes look. Too much curl.
I agree with Amelia that as time goes on they should get better and better though.
Is there a preference on undocked tails? Will they ever hang low like a lab? Or will they have to always be atleast straight up? (like a beagle) or do they prefer the curl?
I love the curly tails--your boy has my ideal tail, just about!I think he has quite a nice tail I like the straighter ones, rather than the ones which curl and curl like a corkscrew! I think the dobe tail will get nicer and nicer as time goes on in countries where docking is made illegal.
