Revised Ear Cropping Policy Approved by Board

At the regular December 2010 meeting of the CKC Board of Directors the following revised Ear Cropping policy was approved:

The Canadian Kennel Club has protected the integrity of purebred dogs since its founding in 1888.  It is the steward of Standards and Registration.

Today the Canadian Kennel Club supports breeders whose breeds have traditionally been cropped.  The Canadian Kennel Club is attentive to changing societal values with respect to purebred dogs and with dogs in general.

The Canadian Kennel Club believes that the breed clubs are best able to manage the standards of their respective breeds.  The practice of ear cropping is a significant part of the history of many breeds or purebred dogs.  Breeders of purebred dogs continue this practice for not only historical reasons but also to promote safety in performance activities and to promote hygienic animal husbandry.

The Canadian Kennel Club is concerned that the practice of ear cropping be performed under the most humane of circumstances, and that breeders deserve the right to choose to have this practice done; and further, that veterinarians deserve the right to choose to perform the practice.  It is noted that the practice of ear cropping continues to be available in other countries, including the United States.”
