“Docking” is a marketing term to soften language of amputation. “Docking” sounds professional right? It’s a selling point for puppy sales. How often do Craigslist Breeders refer to #dockedtails A LOT! 😿 its an amputation if a major limb on a dogs body that they need to have a healthy balanced back! We know a bit about this because our beloved cocker spaniel breed is being mutilated by breeders who continue to amputate the tails (again, until the AKC stops designating this as part of the breed standard for cockers, the breeders will not stop this cruel practice) Tail amputations are generally done within two days of birth, no anesthesia or pain medication.  Many backyard breeders perform it themselves with scissors or garden clippers.  When not done at a vet, often the tail amputation is so messed up that a puppy can actually bleed to death. Breeders will tell you "oh it's no big deal, it doesn't hurt that much because the tail is still soft at that age". They are wrong. Docking a puppy's tail involves cutting through muscles, tendons, blood vessels, highly sensitive nerves and severing bone and cartilage connections. Nature gave the dog a long natural tail of vertebrae for a reason. To serve as a way to balance the dog’s back. So when you amputate the tail, you are permanently putting the dog’s ability to balance and protect his/her back at risk. Cocker Spaniels with amputated tails are at most risk for having back problems later in life.  The common age for a slipped vertebrae in a cocker spaniel is between eight and nine years old. (double click HERE to view a video clip of a cocker spaniel that has paralysis from a slipped back disc) Back surgery is not something all pet owners can afford (between a $2,500 MRI and a $6,000 surgery, it's the price of a used car!). Many pet owners that are not prepared for major medical bills and didn't get #petinsurance will euthanize the dog because they don't want to care for a paralyzed dog.  Back surgery is considered urgent once a slipped disc happens.  If you can get your dog in to surgery within 48 hours, there is the best chance for the dog to regain feeling in the spinal cord.
