What is the purpose of dogs tails?

  • by sc001
The tail helps the dog maintain his balance by putting its weight on the opposite side of the dog's tilt, much like a tightrope walker uses the balance bar to stay on the tightrope. Dogs that enjoy climbing various surfaces will use their tails to balance on uneven footing, such as rocks or trees.
