"Ear cropping is when the ear lobes of a dog are cut off in part or whole, usually without any anaesthesia or pain relief, for purely cosmetic reasons. The procedure usually takes place when puppies are two or three months old, and the trauma of the procedure can have a significant psychological impact on the maturing dog.'' Robin Hargreaves - BVA Past President
