    While we are on the subject of tail docking (sort of!) I wanted to ask - if I found a breeder in WA that I like but they dock the pup's tails, I can't really request a pup with a natural tail can I? Because they get done when they are so young, the breeder wouldn't have picked out the right pup at that stage...??

    I don't think that would be possible.
    Docking is done at less than 2 weeks old. So you wouldn't know which one you want, which one they want, and which one other people want.
    Besides, if they are 'proper' breeders, they will want them to be 'show-worthy'. Which means living up to the breed standard which will include the docking.
    If you wanted a non docked/non cropped dog, then you'd have to go to a breeder that leaves them 'natural'

    True Myf. I think that would be hard finding one that leaves their tails natural. I guess I could look at eastern states dogs to get around that one. Just a shame cos then I couldn't visit the parents & puppies.

    Oh man I wish!!!!

    Not just yet. Probably in a couple of years. I can't afford it atm and also I'm still living at home & my parents won't let me get another dog while I'm there.

    Every now and then I google boxer breeders but that's depressing cos I can't have one right now.

    LOL.
    I know what you mean.
    Im still keeping an eye out for Dalmatian breeders, but I make myself feel like a terrible person cause im not getting one till Roly dies. I should just cherish the time I have with him before I think about ANOTHER dog.
    And then I end up depressed.
