isn't ear cropping usually done before a pup leaves the breeders? what type of dog do you own? Are you going to be showing the dog? There aren't too many vets anymore that will crop a dogs ears ....a lot don't like it. But I'm sure you'll find someone in the area

is this for the 5 WEEK old dobe? I'm curious as to why the breeder won't refer you to someone? Personally, I prefer natural ears and tails on all dogs.

I am with you Jesse leave them natural. Sometimes even when cropped they do not always stay standing. In some states it is illegal to crop their ears

I am making a new rule when I become Prime Minister

Any "owner" that want's to crop their dogs ears must have their own ears cropped first....
