Tails docked
by: Anonymous

If a dogs tailed is going to be docked it should be done between ages 2 to 5 days old. That is the time where it is considered to not really be painful and no anesthesia is needed. If you miss that window then you should wait until after 8 weeks old because you will need to put the dog under anesthesia.
