Is It Legal to Dock a Dogs Tail?

Answer

The docking of dog tails was banned in England in 2007 but with exceptions from the ban for certain working dogs, and for medical treatment. There is also a ban on the showing of docked dogs at events to which members of the public are admitted through payment of a fee. However, this ban does not apply to dogs shown for the purpose of demonstrating their working ability. The exemption for working dogs allows a dog that is likely to perform certain specified types of work to have its tail docked by a veterinary surgeon. The dog will have to be less than 5 days old and the veterinary surgeon will have to certify that he or she has seen specified evidence that the dog is likely to work in specified areas.
