D.I.Y.S. BANDING TAILS PLUS REMOVING DEWCLAWS banding an adult dogs tail


Judy has been asked NUMEROUS times how the banding is done because I' ve known breeders to wind elastic (rubber) bands around the tails of puppies at.

First, it's often done on older puppies who have thicker tails with more tissue. The larger tail makes it more difficult to achieve the desired results.

Docking tails by banding is done when the pups are between days of age, depending on the size of the 7mm or 1/4 inch per inch required in an adult dog.
