Why do people cut their dogs’ tails?

    Tail docking is also done for some breeds (examples: Cocker Spaniel, Boxer, Doberman, Vizsla) and is the amputation of the tail, the length of remaining portion of tail is determined by the breed standard. Some breeds, such as the Welsh Corgi, have naturally occurring short tails, but are sometimes docked to be shorter.

    This is very controversial since many believe this is cosmetic mutilation and should be banned. Some cities have attempted to ban this practice, while some veterinary hospitals, such as Banfield Veterinary Group, have banned these types of surgeries for cosmetic purposes.
