So can breeders get these removed or not due to laws ???Gypsy, Inca and Echo had them removed at a day or two old. but the license laws changed and my breeder couldn't do it for Delta so i had to get them removed when being spayed.
i will always get my girls dew claws removed(much easier when born than waiting to get them spayed) as i don't king them and know a number of dogs who constantly rip them off or catch them on things. other people never clip them and the grow into the pad causing an infection.
so i think breeders should remove them.
it depends on the local council, Sylvia said her councils laws changed and if she did it was would lose her license.So can breeders get these removed or not due to laws ???
I clip my dogs dew claws but I know what you mean they do get in the way when they are small.
It depends on where you live. I am in Canada and Lady has her tail docked and her back dew claws removed. She is not from a working cockerspaniel, nor any kind of guns certificates for her to be a working dog, simply a pet, i think when it comes to all of those things it is very geographically dependentI think I'm right in saying that dew claw removal will be for working dogs only, so if the breeder has a shotgun certificate, they will provide this as proof that the dogs are intended for working, same goes for tail docking, which for spaniel type breeds, btw, should only be the end third of the tail, nowhere near the stump that some have docked to in the past.
Dew claws can be a problem, as I know with my girl who's recently split her dew claw right up at the top. Superglue can help to hold it, but cutting the loose part off is the best option, best done by a vet if you haven't got the experience.
Absolutely, I'm talking UK here, and I know that docking and dew claw removal is banned (I think for both) in Scotland. You have to abide by strict rules to have your pup docked in England, and many vets refuse to do it for fear of reprisals from *activists*, ridiculous really, as it's been done for so many years to prevent injury in the first place!! Docking of many breeds is still allowed in the ROI, and a lot of these are advertised on the internet for sale in the UK, breeds such as boxers, rotties etc.It depends on where you live.

Depends on the dogDeltas dew claws were only removed 7 months ago.
Dew claws don't wear down as they don't touch the ground so you need to clip them especially if your grooming your dog yourself. they can cats and tare and in bad cases some dogs go lame as it damage the ligament.
i know a dog who ripped hers in a short cut grass run with no bushes, we still don't know how she did it.
