YELPS AND JUMPS AND BITES HIS TAIL
I have a ten week old male poodle who yelps and jumps into the air its been going on for two weeks.he had his tail docked when he was 3 days old.
Could that have something to do with it?
When he jumps and yelps he turns to his tail.
It does sound as though your pup is feeling something in his tail region that is making him jump, although I can't say what.
I would doubt it's anything to do with his tail being docked, but it is possible. I own and raise Rottweilers, and their tails are routinely docked on the third day after birth.
I've never had any problem with any of my dog's or puppy's tails, and they are docked very short which I'm assuming your Poodles' isn't.
I can really only recommend that you take your pup to the vet and have him check him out. It could be something to do with the nerves in his rear end/spin/even hips perhaps. As I'm not a vet myself, I can't make any kind of accurate diagnosis I'm afraid.
Your own vet should be able to figure out what's going on though and get it taken care of. Best of luck.
