Crop or Not? Dock or Don't?

Cropping and docking dog ears and tails has been discussed, argued and fought about for decades. Instead of cosmetics or tradition, we shall view this issue energetically.

Dogs use their tails to convey a range of emotions and social cues. From the high, fast tail wag of an uncertain greeting to the fast, whole-hearted let's play hello.

Without a tail many dogs are at a disadvantage in expression their emotions. This seems to affect dogs with docked tails more than dogs born tail-less.

Dogs With Docked Tails
• They are missing a body part they were genetically meant to have
• Poor communication may cause frustration, insecurity or increased aggression
