Is cropping dogs ears illegal?
Ear cropping illegal.
Tail docking restricted since 2013, can only be done by a vet on certain working dog breeds.
Cropping ears is banned.
Docking tails is allowed, as long as it's performed by a veterinarian.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
