If you look at the underside of the tail, you will see the direction of the hair growth - it splits right down the middle - you want to take your clipper and GENTLY clip away from the anus

I generally clip at the most one clipper blade width from the anus to the pompom - I set the line while the tail is up, and then put the tail down and continue the line onto the top of the tail



the basic clip around the tail



setting the "V" on the top of the tail

Once you have your line set, take the clipper and run it up to the line to clean in up - do it on both sides
