October Setters

    I think I remember reading that England also doesn’t allow removal of dewclaws, trimming ears to make them stand up, etc.

    Important point that we should be educating our puppy buyers on how to take care of them. It’s easy to get lazy about keeping track of trimming nails.

    Robert- what kind of cover did your dog tear the claw in? I’ve read a number of times that it might be more of an issue in cut corn. The setter I saw with a dew claw injury was hunting in grouse cover though, and I don’t know how it happened. She also got a big 3 corner skin tear on barbed wire that needed stitches during that same week of grouse hunting :/
