Please move this if it;s in the wrong section What I'm wondering is why people have their dogs tails docked? I know that it's for working reasons but why? How does it help? Also how do vets go about docking tails? Peace Akai-Chan PS - I am not here to start an argument. I am here only for factual answers to a question, not for people to throw their opinions of whether it is right or wrong at eachother. I do not own a dog, I do not think tail docking is right, i just want to know the answer to my question.
