My vet here in Tulsa, OK told me $250 and ive never had a puppy young enough to consider getting their ears cropped. Sounds to me like the price he gave me was reasonable. Thanks for the info!!smiggs guy is the cheapest I have ever heard of so dont compare to his guy lol. If your in the cali area get him to refer you to his guy if not you might have to pay more. What did your vet quote you? Up here where I am we paid about $250 per dog but i went a different route with my 1st girl and ended up paying like $500 so really prices can vary.
