Ear Cropping

In general our puppies are sold with cropped ears.  The ears are cropped at 6 weeks of age.  At this age it is believed that the pain of the crop is not remembered by the puppy.  For the ear crop, the puppy is anesthetized with isofluorine gas and put on a heart monitor.  The cropping is performed by a skilled veterinarian who has experience cropping ears.  He does a lovely job.  We provide training on the care of the cropped ear for our puppy buyers.  There are cases where we are willing to leave the ears uncropped, but that must be negotiated before the pup is purchased.
