Not all husky's tails curl. Snipers may or may not, so just be aware. Usually if they do curl, it will happen within the first six months or so (similar to how their ears "pop up" after a while).

Not saying it won't happen, but it's a genetic thing and it doesn't happen for every husky.

Someone brought a 6 week old puppy to the husky meet?! That is totally not safe for the puppy and I hope it doesn't get sick. Poor thing...

I think they're not supposed to curl too much...

Quote :
Tail
The well furred tail of fox-brush shape is set on just below the level of the topline, and is usually carried over the back in a graceful sickle curve when the dog is at attention. When carried up, the tail does not curl to either side of the body, nor does it snap flat against the back. A trailing tail is normal for the dog when in repose. Hair on the tail is of medium length and approximately the same length on top, sides and bottom, giving the appearance of a round brush. Faults--A snapped or tightly curled tail; highly plumed tail; tail set too low or too high.

The fault is for a tail that curls so much that the back of the tail lays down on the back of the dog or flops to one side. The tail is only supposed to curl so that the tip of the tail touches the dog's back.

I know Cindi's Gus had the "over-curled" tail problem which she was really working on when she was trying to show him.

Yeah I saw it. It was super cute, and I thought it looked young but figured it was just small. Six weeks is just WAY too young. It doesn't even have all its shots yet! It's just really irresponsible.

I guess none of ours would be considered "normal". Nanuk & Isis' tail curl way over pretty much all the time. Mika, however, has a tail more in the description in Harrise's post. Straight when "in repose" or just standing and when trotting around. Then, it does curl at times, but not way to one side or the other. Regardless, since mine are not being shown, not having papers for any of them, it matters not a whit to me! Love the little buggers!

They wont always keep their tails curled either, Our girls will curl when they alert or when their running around, I find it hilarious to watch how it moves as they adjust their pace and turn. Sometimes it hangs down, but you will probally notice it doesnt droop straight down, its probally more or less out behind your dog. The pretiest poses is when kiera spots a squirrel out in the front yard or crossing the teleephone wires over the yeard, She stacks in a perfect husky pose that just makes me anxious for our first show in May!

My puppy's tail was curly by the time I got him at 12 weeks. It was really cute. It seemed too long for his body as it would lie on his back!
