Publish for Comment: Proposed Breed Standard Amendments: Docking, Cropping & Dewclaw Removal
For several years tail docking, ear cropping and declaw removal has been a topic at the forefront of purebred dog discussions. The declarations by various provincial veterinary regulators that practitioners within their jurisdiction can no longer provide these services has sparked some angst for many active CKC members. At the same time, legislative and societal changes provides a need to accommodate those that chose not to crop, dock or remove dewclaws, many of whom wish to participate in CKC events. It is about providing options. The CKC is reaching out to breeders and owners of these breeds to solicit your feedback on proposed changes to docking, cropping and dewclaw removal.
The proposed amendments are published for comment for breeders and owners of the breed only.
GROUP 2 – Finnish Spitz
GROUP 7 – Welsh Corgi (Cardigan)
