no such thing.
look. i believe the decision to crop is an owner's right. some people are against it for their own reasons. but that's not what's going on here.
there are very good reasons for the time limit on cropping. i will spare you the anatomy lesson. but imagine the mental and physical trauma of circumcising a boy at 3 or 4 years old. (yes i know the analogy is kinda extreme, but the premise still applies). you would inflict memorable pain
. we all know dog's are emotional creatures. and that experience will shape the dog's development and trust in his owner.
there is a point when the cosmetic benefits are completely outweighed by the welfare of the animal. and that's also the point when we as owners need to put our "preferences" aside.
