Schnauzers, Great Danes, and others. Thousands of
young puppies are forced to endure surgery which
is expensive, uncomfortable, relatively
dangerous, and can be painful in the recovery
phases. The amazing part is this surgery is
totally unnecessary. Read More...

This practice was started centuries ago when dog
fighting sports were legal and popular. The idea
was that it was more humane to crop the dogs
ears rather than have them shredded during a
battle, which of course, would be more painful
and have potentially worse complications. But the
point is that because we no longer allow our dogs
to fight for sport there is no humane and
practical purpose of cropping ears. But the
expensive and needless surgery continues. Read

We have become accustomed to seeing certain
breeds with cropped ears and if we saw one with
natural ears he would stand out. Even though AKC
does not require cropped ears, a dog with natural
ears in a ring full of crop-eared animals would
most likely not stand a chance of winning. We
simply expect a breed to look a certain way and
when a dog doesnt we question his bloodline and
basically think he looks funny or out of place.
Breeders and dog owners alike have complied with
this expectation of society and therefore it is
perpetuated the cycle continues. Read More...

  • There are obviously numerous reasons not to crop
    a dogs ears. Please see the list below
  • The surgery is unnecessary and all surgeries come
    with a certain amount of risk. Ear cropping is no
    exception to that. It simply is not justifiable.
  • The surgery is usually done when the puppy is
    between six and ten weeks old. This is a time
    when the pup is emotionally fragile. Permanent
    damage to the puppys disposition can result as a
    reaction to the trauma of the surgery, the pain
    and frustration of post-operative bandaging,
    racking and taping. Read More...

  • There can be quite a loss of blood during this
    surgery. The physical effect on the puppy can be
    very damaging.
  • Ear-cropping happens about the same time that the
    puppy is ready to be sold. In many states the
    surgery must be performed by a veterinarian. This
    adds to the cost the breeder must incur which
    means he/she will take a large cut from the
    profits or have to pass the cropping costs along
    to the buyer. And most buyers do not find puppies
    with bandaged heads as attractive as those
    without. Read More...

Its your decision in the end. If you want your
dog to look like all the others then ear cropping
is probably the way to go. But please keep in
mind that ear cropping is a choice, not a
requirement. Examined our latest blog post
