    Lol you would be surprised, ear cropping and tail docking can be a passionate subject.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Some breeders have been burned by puppy buyers who have promised to desex their limited register puppy (not to be bred) and then changed their minds and started using their purchase as a cash farm and quoting the original breeder's prefix. It's ugly and nasty and some breeders want to make sure their puppies never suffer this fate.
    There is where I have a problem - If they dont want them bred from,they shouldnt breed them and sell them! The ones I have seen, are large breeders pumping out a lot of puppies. Desexing early , as has been discussed is not always in the best interest of the dogs. So who's interests are being looked after here?

    If they didnt breed unwanted dogs in the first place, they wouldnt have to worry bout them being bred from and prefixes used.

    Do some rescues still desex early as well?

He would also have had absolutely no problem jumping clean over the fence from a standing start if so inclined(unfortunately my mate didn't mind his dog wandering and he eventually lost a battle with a car)

    Oh wow, that is sad, That is amazing, they are so small compared to a 6 foot fence...amazing agility is right and some wasted talent there no doubt.

    I am a bit like you I like the aesthetics of it and wouldn't be against getting a dog cropped down the track, but obviously not whilst living here.

    Just out of curiosity for those of you who are very anti-dock/crop. What are your thoughts on circumcision? This is a decision made by parents for a child when it is unable to make the decision for itself and would include a fair bit of pain for the baby I am sure. I guess I see this as a similar thing, I realise some do it for religious reasons but I know many who just do it because they prefer it....
    Wow, From ear cropping to circumcision !!!!

    For me when I had my sons, as we are not religeous and the science surrounding {health concerns) over not circumsising were unsubstantial, I chose not circumcising as there were no valid reasons to do it, and ive never been one to follow "trends" especially at someone elses expense.
    My thoughts, as with dogs is we are not born without useless bits that are not there for some reason or serve some purpose.

    My sons have never had a problem retaining there man bits, and to date have not had them caught up in a flywire door nor any bushes ...well that I know about anyway, but i could be wrong
    I also heard a baby being circumsised, and the sound continues to haunt me today., and they told me the proccess was relatively painless, but babies cant talk, nor do they the opportunity to say no thanks..!

    I have heard a few posters who have no problem with tail docking and ear cropping and they feel any pain or discomfort is minimal and that may well be the case, so how about we have a volunteer from our lovely audience to "test the theory"

    Then when your little finger is gone, and you felt the pain was minimal, and when your dog verbally tells you he likes the "look" and wishes to have his tail cut cut off.....I will agree with you on the merits of tail and ear cutting.

    I only desex my females. My males are usually kept entire.

    And I never desex until after 6 months of age....well usually bang on 6 months.

    In regards to jumping fences, my boxer/staffy x could clear a 6 ft fence without a run up, and without touching the fence. He was a pain in the ass LOL. We did end up desexing him at 6 and it made him worse at escaping LOL.

    I have and will continue to desex all my dogs and cats. Mainly, because its easier. No seasons to worry about, less dog fights and all the issues linked to hormones. That doesn't make me a lazy dog owner - my dogs will still be trained, restrained, socialised, etc. It just means I have eliminated one issue from my life and from my dogs life.

    I am curious about this early desexing thing - the RSPCA say on their website that early desexing results in quicker healing time, less scarring and quicker recovery - so what is the problem with it? I am familliar with the incontenance issues with females being desexed too early - but I had a bitch desexed at 8 months and she still had issues.

    Less scarring and recovery time they reckon?

    How funny. I picked Pippi up a few hours after her speying and she was pretty recovered immediately. I let her outside to go toilet and sh eimmediately went and did bloody zoomies the rat bag lol.

    Less dog fights is an interesting one....we have never had dog fights in our house despite varying mixes of entire males and desexed females.

    Though my mum had constant fights with 2 desexed bitches...go figure.
