Question about the Havanese tail???
I have a question for some of you that attend and/or show dogs in conformation.
Do you see very many Havanese dogs with tails that don’t curl over their back? I ask because I am having trouble keeping Missy’s tail curled over her back at dog shows. She doesn’t curl her tail over her back at home very much either. She can curl it over her back and it looks beautiful….she just doesn’t do it.
I am wondering if I should continue to show her or wait until her tail matures and hopefully curls over her back more of the time.
How important is a tail that curls over the back in judging these dogs? I love their curled tail, so it is a little frustrating for me to not be able to get her tail to curl over her back more.
Here are some pictures of Missy’s tail; one she is a puppy at the breeders, the other is a puppy with a curled tail when I brought her home, and the last one is at a show.
