How long was ur pup in a cone? How was the maintenance. I've heard wonderful things about laser that's why I want to go this route. Was he sore or not acting himself for awhile?

Actually the cut off is normally between 14 and 16 weeks. Some vets MAY crop at 5 months, just depends on the vet and your dog's ears.

Awww I love his ears! But I love a good crop though it's a tough choice I think. I kept Cain's natural his ears fit his personality.

Alot of people have been trying to get us to do it too simply because we may decide to show him and the trainer we spoke to said it is major points off too. I'm going to attach a picture of how I would want his ears to look and this pup is extremely similar to my pup so this is what gave me the nudge to really consider it Name:  ImageUploadedByPG Free1367799149.921967.jpg

That trainer is full of poop. They don't take points off for uncropped ears.
