Don't buy into the trend

Ear cropping is a completely unnecessary process where the ear flap is shaped or removed, sometimes using scissors and knives. In many cases it is done by irresponsible breeders who want to sell them at a higher price.


While those who practise ear cropping claim it helps protect dogs against injury and infections, it is in fact untrue.


The procedure is often done on puppies without any vet intervention or anaesthetic, which can result in long-term pain. Cutting a dog’s ears can also harm their ability to communicate. Their social skills are impaired, impacting the dog’s behaviour.


Cropping a dog’s ears is already illegal under the Animal Welfare Act, but that hasn’t stopped unscrupulous breeders from doing it.
