Default Where to take dog for cropping ears?

I'm looking to get a dog and have its ears cropped.
I'm sure someone on here knows of a good place,I'm in the Plano area.
Thanks
Ed

Yes! There in frisco is a place. Let me ask my wife in just a sec when she comes in the room. We did our Doberman there. Places that crop ears are getting harder and harder to find.

Oh, thought there was something else to it besides the appearance.

Just some info...most vets won't touch a dogs ears if the dog is over 12 weeks old. Don't know how old the dog youre getting is but just so you know. I would expect to pay $300 or more and some vets want to keep the dogs overnight...which is really not necessary but if you've got the money that's you're choice. I think cropped ears look great personally and my boy has his done too.

Another plus that people don't think about is that cropped ears help reduce the amount of crap that gets into the ears. A second plus is, god forbid, if your dog happens to get ons scrape with another dog and doesn't have the ears done they can easily get ripped off and are pretty much unrepairable. I know its unlikely but it does happen. Good luck and I hope you find a good place who will take great care of your pup.

As said earlier its getting harder to find vets that will do it. It's thought to be painful and not necessary but its really not as painful as some people think and there are real benefits.

I don't know of a place but I have a pit and thought about doing this myself but then decided not to for my dogs sake and his ears give him personality lol. But of course every owner has their own preference. I like both looks, but deff don't need another reason for people to put a bad rep on my friendly pit.

Cropped ears are a must for dobies and in our case a pitbull. They just look kinda weird with uncropped ears IMO.

That's what I mean. Most vets want to keep them overnight. It's not a bad thing at all, they can monitor them and make sure everything is cool. It's usually not necessary and I know of MANY American bully breeders who don't leave their dogs overnight who have never had an issue. Again it's totally preferance and sometimes the vet won't do it unless you let them stay.

As far as the price goes...it's a small price to pay and you'll love it. Some people think the floppy ears make the dog and some people think the little ears make the dog. Either way is not wrong in my opinion as long as you don't let some dude in his backyard do them. It's so funny to see my boy when he knows he messed up. He pins those little ears back and walks real slow to me and won't look me in the eyes, lol, it's priceless. When he was younger he walked behind the couch, took a dump, and then as he was walking back he had his head hung low and his little ears back bc he knew he messed up. It's pretty funny with the little ears.
