    Quebec's Order of Veterinarians have banned cosmetic surgery in pets...means they will no longer dock tails and ears. This leaves Alberta and Ontario as the hold outs, and it is likely just a matter of time before the practice will be banned across Canada

    I wish they would ban it in the states. It's nothing more than mutilating an animal. Sickening.

    Other than removing dew claws, which can cause problems with hunting dogs, I don't see much need need to dock tails or crop ears.

    You have never hunted over a Springer with an undocked tail then. Left full length a Field-bred ESS will mangle it's tail to a bloody pulp when it gets into the brambles. (And Springers are ALWAYS in the brambles. ;) )

    A bramble vest and tail sock of same material would be easy fix rather than mutilate puppies.God gave them tails and ears they should have them.
