    Just had 5 cocker pups done down here, 50 cash, but they don'tlike releasing the certificates until they've been chipped...and that costs extra. Be interested in what others pay.

    Years ago we would hold the pup in your left hand and hold its tail firm between your thumb and index finger then with you right thumb and index finger and roll the tail like a match , they came off easey with no blood loss

    To be legal the pup HAS to be chipped by 12 weeks [IIRC] and a lot of vets will do them when they remove the tails. With a chip 50-60 per pup would be reasonable, with the time, chip, certificate etc. You just add it on to the selling price!

    Remember it's the owner of the docked dog's responsibility to prove that the dog was done legally with the chip and paperwork in place.
