I would use Spline Controller.
Just make a long bone chain along the body and pull the chain along a path using spline controller. It is very simple really, there are tutorials
telling the details.

As in the puppet chinese dragon, or the actual creature?

If the former, then certainly spline control... easy as...

If the latter, then also spline control could be part of it, or there are other options, depending on how you need it to move, what kind of animation control setup you want, etc.

Thanks for your advices. and there are my dragon. i used Spline Control to animate it. but at somewhere it don't work well.
I used FiberFx to make the hair and tail. But I can't make it float in the wind. And any advice is appreciated.

use real geometry instead (renders better) and add clothfx dynamics to it
