Morbid approaches to physical enhancement are not scientific

It is FAR less traumatizing when it is done with a band in the frist few days of life.

Except when it doesn't happen right, infection sets in and the pup becomes septic.
I see SOOOOOOO many bad banding jobs, not even counting the pups that become ill. Bone exposed, scarring, etc.

Seriously, have you ever watched tailed being docked PROPERLY by a vet? I've assisted with many litters. Pups scream when you take them from mom & sibs, then stop screaming when you put them back. I have yet to see pups keep on screaming like was posted here. Those pups were likely done imporperly or too old.

Dogs are not natural, and the natural ears typically found in the breed are not naturally occuring.
When I look at Bloodhound ears, "Sound Funnels" are the last things that come to mind.

Very young puppies didn't seem to care, but once the pups were older than a few weeks he said they SCREAMED. Someone here posted a while ago about the vet they worked for digging the last bone out of the tail after a dock so that they had extra skin to put a stitch in. *gag*
