I just measured Vegas's tail, and his docked tail is the same length as my boxer mixes natural tail; 10 inches, or about 25.5 cm. Here's a picture of Precious so you can see her tail length (without the poodley hair!)



And a good picture of Vegas's tail.


How long is your poodles tail?

Interesting question.

Measured underneath. Base to tip of bone.
Delilah 9"
Sabrina 7"

I really do like a longer dock.

My mini Ted's tail is about 5 1/2 inches, that includes the hair stretched out.

His tail isn't that long, lol. I'm so jealous of the long lengths I read here. I wish his tail was long like a shih-tzu's own (even if most of is hair).

Both our spoos are undocked:

Toulouse (5 yrs.)>14 inches
Lautrec (1 yr.)>15 inches....and the winner is....:)

I have to admit, I was cracking up a bit while measuring. My husband said,
what are you doing? Ha, he, ho ...I'm measuring the dogs tails. Both he
and Lautrec had the same response, hmmm?

Lacey has a 7" tail. I like the longer tails too, however, Lacey's tail is a little on the gay side and a longer dock would emphasize that.

Lucy's, docked by her breeder, is approximately 10"... Meau's, docked at the vet at the request of her breeder (who was a bad byb), is only about 5.5" :wacko:

I had no idea how to properly measure a tail, so the way Carol (Cbrand) measured, seemed right. So, Romeo's tail is 9 inches and Brandy's is almost 8. But they looks like their tail length is the same. I guess it's because Brandy is so much smaller than Romeo, so I guess is all balances out.

I love the look of a long dock way more than a short dock or a natural tail. Poodles with pretty tails are soooo gorgeous :) <3

Desmond's tail... it's only 4 inches. :(
