Default Ear Cropping

I'm new to the forum, and third Boxer owner.

I live in the Inland Empire, SoCal, and I'm looking for a doctor that knows how to crop Boxers' ears. I want the best for a perfect cut.

Thanks in advanced.

Pete

Are you planning to show? From what I understand, even the show circle no longer insists on cropped ears anymore. Floppy is beautiful and doesn't hurt the puppy!

Ear cropping seems to be controversial these days. Although it supposedly can be done anytime I wouldn't after 12 weeks. It does hurt the pup, there will be stitches and after care. I use to have mini schnauzers and we always had their ears done before we would even sell the pup, I wouldn't do it anymore, but that is my personal choice. As for your question I do not know of anyone in So Cal that does ear cropping. I know that when I lived in NJ we would take the puppies to Pennsylvania to get ears done as it really needed to be precise and not every vet was good at it (show wise) I understand today boxers can be shown in natural state. Tail docking is also becoming controversial but at least it is done at 2 days old.

I kinda sorta thought it was done at an early age also?? When I got my first Boxer I wanted her Cropped and Docked. My wife did not want her altered at all. Struddell was already docked and asked the breeder about the cropping, took me much for me. I figured oh well tail done a reasonable compromise.

ANd as it turned out the "floppy" ears suited her personality just fine. I've had absolutely no regrets over that "compromise."

Now if I ever that Dogo Argentino that I want, yeah that guys getting cropped.

How old is your pup? It's typically not done after 10 weeks of age.

He is at 9 weeks now.

Found a vet, and made an appointment. My previous Boxers had them cropped. I will buy a female to breed them, and planned on leaving the female with regular ears.

Regarding the tail, I think all Boxers' tail should be docked. These days it's done with a rubber band.

It is mutilation... There is no reason for it and the pups suffer greatly. It is also a lot of work for the owner.. Let the puppy be, it looks great like it is

Cropping and docking is personal preference. Ear cropping is usually done on those who wish to show but it's also done by those that prefer the look of a cropped dog. To each their own.........

As for breeding....... Please do your research on proper breeding practices including health testing.
