The argument of to dock/crop/alter or not is the exact same arguement as to circumsize a baby boy or not!!! My pup Booker was docked and dew claws removed and I would not want him any other way. We also have a springer spaniel with a docked tail, but has his dewclaws (which during hair trims have almost been removed accidentaly).

if you are wanting to show with AKC tails have to be docked and ears cropped, if not you will be docked points nor not be able to show. Do your research before you make ant decisions. I like the nubs and natural ears but that is just me.

Uncropped ears are not penalized in the AKC ring; they have never been official "disallowed" and have been explicitly included in the standard since 2005. While some judges have a bias against uncropped ears, most are more concerned with the ear set, leather, and lay than whether the ears are cropped or not.

An undocked tail is to be severely penalized per the 2005 AKC standard.
