Mousse’s Eighth Born
Cliff Met several folks who have waited for some time for an OwyheeStar pup yesterday. Yes, Piper’s tail was left full length by request in the more European manner. 95% of Americans still prefer to stick to the American Breed Standard with their pup’s tail being docked.
To the right you see Indy–the undocked tail showing. He is from our lineage; however, he was born in the UK where tail docking is illegal.
This is a very controversial topic. For those that wonder, the docking of the tail is done very early. The skinny–doing the tails early is less painful, and the tail is much smaller in diameter. Waiting to make a decision means a more painful and severe procedure. In the OwyheeStar Weimaraner New’s Blog ‘Tails Vs Tales‘ you can read more about the Weimaraner and tail docking. Overall, there is less risk of tail injury when the tail is docked. For this hunting breed, it is the preferred option. Many American breeders will not consider catering to those who wish to have their pup with the full-length tail.
