    When I got a female EBD many years ago I found out what infected tail was all about and vet said to soak her bottom in some epsom salt every other day for several bathes and they also put her on an antibiotic both. So I did that and much to my surprise it actually helped her and she was able to sit comfortably. I brought her home from the breeders house this way and never knew what that awful smell was but I found out quickly when I took her to the vet. She also told me that Noxema pads were same as ones they give to us but much cheaper. I took her advice and bought those as well and was very surprised at how well they do work and still today I use them on my girl.

    I personally would not use water.... use the witch hazel as it is a nature drying agent and you do not have to be concerned about going in for a dry

    Luckily we're friends with the breeder and they came up to ours last night for a bbq and I bit the bullet and asked her how she did it before we had him. I didn't want to do this as I didn't want them to think we couldn't look after him properly. She got him and picked his tail up, as soon as she touched his tail he moaned but when she picked it up he didn't make a noise at all, apparently he doesn't like his bum being touched so what I thought was going to be a difficult life long challenge was shown to be pretty simple haha. Thank you everyone for your advice, its nice to know good advice is given pretty quick

    Try to check that it is not infected. If he is liking it less and less all the time, it sounds like he is hurting. You could try lifting him on the table also. for some reason they are more calm on the table. Ear cleaners are also good for tail pocket cleaning.

    Ye I thought it could be infected so started to worry that why I bit the bullet and asked the breeder who we got him from and when she lifted his tail up he didn't moan 1 bit and it wasn't sore, just need to keep an eye on him and do what she did

    No its not their favorite thing.I use baby wipes for after potty.I use witch hazel for the tail pocket.Be very careful about this especially pulling the tail up because you can dislocate it or sprain it.Good luck

    He may have a sore under his tail. My 6 year old bully just had a nasty sore under his that we had no idea about. It was the first time we ever had any problems at all with his tail pocket. I find it best to do as another recommended, just sliding a wipe under the tail and not actually using your fingers. I think this aggravates them less. Just be sure to try and dry it as much as possibly because the damp, wetness can cause more problems.
