Here’s a fun topic, so genetics decided to have fun with my pup, and somehow managed to give her a 20’ inch tail, she’s just 47lbs, 21 at withers, and 7 months. As some of you know she came as an unintended litter between my local ipo / training club members wgwl & wgwl x asl shepherd, so no planning went into her, or her genetics so no surprise
My worry is, it’s too long. She’s young & it’s bound to get longer. What should I do? She’s a very energetic, silly & quite careless puppy ( gotta love it ) and with that, she’s managed to step on her own tail, slam it painfully into walls, it’s very easy to step on, nearly gets caught in doors, and in stuff. By the end it very well could be a 22’-24’ inches and I’d hate for any accident to happen, that leaves her with a painful broken tail, getting her tail caught, cut, or even all paralysis.
What do you thinks the best option for her? Is there ways I can keep it Safe? Should docking even be in the question? Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s adorable and I love her tail but I’m wondering about the safety
