Appearance: The tail is supposed to slope at the croup and fit close to the rump. Ultimately, it should resemble a fox tail.
First, line brush then line comb the tail from the base to the tip. Hold your dog’s tail out straight with your free hand and brush tail feathers downward. Step back and look to see if there are any hairs way out of place. You’re not doing a lot of trimming here but you are making it neat. After you have carefully trimmed the out of place hair, lift the tail straight up and neaten the sides. When you have clipped the fur to the desired length you may use shaver or scissors to carefully trim the fur around your dog’s rear end. Make sure not to nick or cut the rear end and/or the actual tail.
