I am a new dog owner and I recently got a Doberman. While playing with him, I noticed that he often tries to bite his own tail. At first, I thought it was just a playful behavior, but then I read somewhere that some dogs, including Dobermans, can actually round themselves to bite their tail and try to remove it.
I am really worried about my Doberman and I don't want him to hurt himself. I have tried distracting him with toys and treats, but he still tries to bite his tail. I am not sure if this behavior is normal or if I should be concerned.
Has anyone else experienced this behavior in their Doberman or any other dog? Is there anything I can do to stop him from doing it? Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated.
