Default Cropping ears at home.

On another forum that I haunt, there was a thread yesterday by a man asking about cropping a dogs ears, and could he do it himself at home. Didn't think it was any big thing, and shouldn't hurt too much. OMG

What is he thinking?!?! I hope someone can talk some sense into him...it's sad to think that this probably happens all the time with people cropping and docking their own pups and I'm sure if they can't pay a vet for that, they can't get routine care; vaccinations, speutering, flea and tick preventative, etc.

Max's ears are done, but they were done before I got him, and were done professionally. If he would have come to me "natural" I would have left him that way. I just don't understand some people's thought process...

This was on game dog forum, and he was read the riot act. I told him that I would get my p inking shears, and give his ears a little nip and tuck. See if that hurt.

I don't think it's about dumb really. It may be more of an uneducated situation. My great grandfather was a chi breeder and he cropped his dogs ears himself. Times have changed as far as awareness. You can't expect everyone to be aware. The best you can do is hope that they will take what you have to say to heart.
I honestly don't think attacking someone is the the right way to handle the situation. You could frustrate them to the point of them taking it out on the puppies.

Can you give us the link to the thread, or post his response? I want to know what he says.

Ugh. That's sickening. Although I'm not a fan of cropping anyway, if you're going to do it, have someone experienced do it properly! People!
OT: That reminds me of when my friend's pound rescue. . .the former owners tried to dock the dog's tail. . .as an adult.
