That question belongs in the Tails, Beaks, and Claws forum. Evo will be along soon to move this thread.

Its what people used to hold a dog by before the invention of the lead.

Aside from the balance, it constitutes part of canine communications. It also covers the dog's arse to hold in the stink to make for more rewarding butt-sniffing. :biggrin:
