MommaDoo: What is the best age to have a great danes ears cropped?

It is a surgery. The dog is asleep. Who cares if I like the cropped ear look? It’s more important that I am kind to my dog. We had a pet rat who had 5 tumors. We had every one removed with surgery. Should we not have had the surgery because it “hurt the poor little thing”?
They were benign tumors and wouldn’t have killed her. We did it for her comfort.

    Ideally the breeder should start the process before the dog comes home. If not get it started right away. the process takes about 4 – 6 months to complete.

    Despite all bleeding hearts squawking about "unneccisary surgery" the Great Dane is one of the few breeds whose ears are shaped in such a way that when it shakes its head the blood vessels at the tips mat actually rupture and cause hemotoma. This is painful to the dogs. Cropping will prevent this.
