Opinions on docked vs undocked? My breeder asked if I had a preference but I’m 50/50. I’ve only seen in person poodles with docked tails. how long are the tails? I know too short of a dock and it’ll be hard to get a decent Pom. What are some thoughts on it look wise do longer tails automatically equal better easier poms? is it hard to keep the hair on the tail detangled?

Since poodles are usually not bred with a long tail, breeders have not done any selection in that area, so itís always a surprise what the tail is going to look like and how the dog will carry it.
I have Merlin, docked and when I got Beckie, docking had become illegal in my province so Beckie was undocked. At first I found it really strange, but now I really prefer it over a docked tail ! I find it makes the dog more balanced.
I would want a natural tail anytime over a docked one now. Mind you Beckieís tail is really nice and she has a nice carriage as well.

I know this is the trend now, but I still love a docked tail. My toy poodle was docked really short way back then, but Zekeís is longer where it curves up over the back and I do prefer that. Love to see it standing up like a flag.
