If Aussies are bred right, they should be born without tails. Sometimes though, they do have tails. If they do have a tail, you can dock their tails when they are young puppies. Aussies that have tails, usuly have nice long feathered tails.

Most Aussies and Mini Aussies nowadays are born with tails. The minority are born without tails, and those that are "natural bobs" can have tails that are very short, or a half length tail, 3/4 length, etc. So even some "natural bobs" will have to have the extra length docked in order to meet breed standards. The majority of aussies and mini aussies are born with long tails with a white tip on the end.
