Bear's tail has always been really long. If I measured correctly it was 22 inches long.
Does anyone else have a GSD with a really long tail?

Gus's tail drags the ground when he's standing. He's got a very long tail. Lol. And last time I measured him I think he was 27" tall. I thought it was just normal?

Gus and Bear are about the same height! Most of the GSD's I've ever seen have not had a tail as long as Bear's.
I know it's not unusual, but was curious how many others have GSD's with really long tails :)

Hondo's tail is very long and he is a long haired GSD. So that means he's either clearing off my coffee table, or he's dragging in all of the fallen leaves from outside.

Is this a long coat thing? Do long coats typically have really long tails? My last GSD was a stock coat and her tail was nowhere near as long as Bear's.

I dunno. I just think because Hondo's hair is longer it makes his tail look even longer than it might truly be. When at rest, it does touch the ground. When excited and he curls it up, it looks like a fan. Maybe he's got peacock in him somewhere.

I measured from the bottom of the croup as well. I actually measured again got a longer measurement (23"). I measured all the way the end, including the hair.
I'll have to measure just to the bone and see where it ends up.

I absolutely love this forum and our fascination with every detail about our GSDs :wub:

Funny this thread should pop up, as I just finished brushing Hans's beautiful tail and was thinking how good it is to be able to brush all that handsomeness on a daily basis! When he was little he would have none of it.

I just measured. 21 inches.
Does anyone know if it will grow more, or is this what it will be?
