left or right tail ???

I know this is going to sound wierd,but I was curious from the breeders on the forum----

Do all tails on havanese have one that goes off on their left side(the judge's side in a show)?

I've been noticing lately in pictures that the tails all are on the havs left side. Does it do this automatically? Is it something you kinda train? Is it a fault if it hangs on the right side?

This is a curiosity question----
Thank you in advance---

Julie, I think a lot of times it is placed more towards the left side for the judges view in conformation. I am still learning a lot but I see a lot of handlers will position the tail or more commonly they hold the tail in place for a hav that will drop its tail out of not being comfortable or bored. Dora will drop her tail when she is scared, Dash drops his tail if he is concentrating or bored from standing around too long.

Julie, what an interesting observation. I never would have noticed tail placement. I'm curious as to the answer.

Well, I can only answer for my two boys, but Carlito appears to be left-tailed and Nico is right-tailed

Kubrick is left-tailed.

I really don't think it's a fault and you can probably place the tail to either side if you want. I've switched Kubrick around to the right before just out of curiosity but if his tail goes down at all (like when he's laying down), when it comes back up it goes to the left again.

Tucker is a lefty, too. I had to look at him, though, because I've never really paid attention to which side it's on--just how pretty it is!

Quincy is a lefty too....and if I put it to the right,it must feel funny or something because he automatically corrects it to the left(show side). I wondered if it was something a breeder kinda trained though,as Quincy was supposed to be a show guy. I notice all sorts of wierd things--so bare with me!
