It has set me wondering why it would be advisable to dock tails at all -- stubby tails or otherwise. In England it is now forbidden to dock tails or crop ears on any breed of dog. I have studied the history of docking and find no health related concerns -- only taxes. So -- would people not want a puppy with an undocked tail? Would people generally prefer an undocked tail? What would be the consensus of this forum?
