CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) standard of a Siberian Husky tail, and what the proper positioning of their tail actually is.
What is the proper position of a Siberian Husky Tail?
When most people think of huskies, they picture the tail being up, in a sickle type curve, but did you know that is not the typical position for them?
In the photo you see above, Lexus is showing you the typical position a Siberian Husky's tail should be. Yep, straight down, in a relaxed state. A Sibe's tail should be relaxed when they are relaxed, simple really.
In this photo, you see Mika with her tail in a sickle curve. This is how the tail should be positioned when a Siberian Husky is at attention, alert, or showing off their gait, as Mika is doing beautifully here.
Finally, this photo is showing you how a husky's tail should be positioned, if they were working, or being active in anything related to working. Lexus was in the midst of digging small holes in the snow, so I suppose that could be considered as work!
Stay tuned to upcoming Siberian Saturday posts, where I will share some more about CKC standards for Siberian Huskies.
