Tail Docking

Recommended Posts


I always go in with mine, pick a bitch out 1st, put the tail under to cover her bits & tell them that's where it needs to be but watch over them all just to make sure.

I was always told it was to be to the knuckle on your finger next to your thumb

what if you have little pups and big hands?

How much dose it cost to have pups docked ?

It has just cost me 70 pound for 7 with dew claws off aswel
never understood why you would want to take a terrier s dew claws off,helped my dogs get out of some rocky tight places in the past just don't see the need for it

I've taken terrier pups to a vet to get them docked and what a old do it was,pups screaming and the bitch who had to be left in the motor going fecking nuts and have to say the most painless and gentle way i've ever seen a docking done was with no tools just the mans finger nail and thumb nail :yes: ,the bitch was with her pups and all he did was pick up a pup nip the tail off and put it back down to her and none of the 3 pups i saw being docked even whimpered.Fecking outrageous vets have to be the ones who do it these days as the man i saw do it was heads and shoulders above the vet i paid to do it for me..

I agree Fireman, although not necessarily the method but with the speed it can be done with no stress to bitch or pups.

Also, IMO, it doesn't make common sense to bring 5 day old pups to a vets surgery.

What if the last patient was a parvo case ?

I think it's mental the tail docking law taking new born pups into a vets to be docked were they chuld pick up parvo or any desise from a dog what's just been in

Then use your own judgement, what did you use as a guideline Rob ?
