Default Does anyone have a picture of a dog in a continental with a flowing long tail?

I really wanted to have Angel, my mini, in a continental for the winter but then I realized, duh, she has a long flowing tail that I don't want to have shaved!

I was wondering what the combo of a continental and a long flowing tail would look like. Probably bad, but maybe good?

Does anyone have any input or pictures?

We might have to go with a lamb clip. :(

Can you clarify a little? Are you not wanting to band the base of the tail?

In the continental, the hindquarters is shaved as is the base of the tail. In a lamb trim, the base of the tail is typically shaved/banded just the same.

Are you saying you don't want to shave the dog's hindquarters? Or the base of the tail? If you're going to be shaving the dog's hindquarters in a continental, I don't see how banding the bottom of the tail just a couple fingers wide will interfere with the long flowing tail. By long flowing tail, do you mean long tail hair? How long are we talking? Or do you mean undocked?

This is how a tail base typically looks in continental. It's usually shaved at the base just the same in a lamb trim, too, though you don't have to. Are you saying you'd rather not shave the base of the tail? I think it'd look OK if you shaved less of the base of the tail, maybe just one finger width.

Thanks, I know how the continental looks, Ginger has had it. I wanted to know how it would look with an undocked, unbanded tail.

I think it will look just fine with an undocked tail (I love long tails!) but I think it will look best if you shave at least a tiny bit of the base of the tail - where hindquarters and tail meet.

I am not on this forum very often, but just happened to see this thread. Vinnie is 18", so a bit larger than your mini probably, but his tail is not docked and I keep him in a continental. I don't do rosettes as he has a rather gay tail and they would be covered anyway. Here are a few shots to give you an idea of what it looks like. His tail hair is 6-8 inches long and the base of his tail is shaved about 2 inches (it keeps things tidy and looks better I think):

look at european poodles in a continental clip. their tails are not docked.

or are you meaning how the look will be for a poodle to be in a continental with a plume tail vs a scissored pom?

Thanks guys! It looks great with an undocked, "plume" tail! I love the long, flowing hair so don't want to scissor it. Also I suck at scissoring. Lol.
