Let us be civil in this topic please. I am aware that people may feel very strongly about this subject but this is a discussion I think we should really have more often, not just here but in general. This practise is actually illegal where I live in and most of Europe but it's actually extremely common in USA and Canada where 130,000 puppies have their ears cropped each year. However, this topic is NOT a political in nature and I'd rather that kept away from this discussion if possible. Instead, I really want to bring more awareness to this and to ask; Do you think cropping a dogs ears and / or docking their tail is okay or are you against it? Natural Doberman Docked and Cropped Doberman Why or why not?
