As I said, this thread is part of the educational archive and it will be much more informative if only photos of good crops are posted. I will remove it from the archive if it no longer serves the purpose that it originally intended to. Back on topic, please.

I'm pretty sure Chase's crop is the short, or the 'military' cut, please correct me if I'm wrong. Personally i prefer the medium and show crops with nice shape to them, but i didn't get a choice with his ears. Either way, i love him to bits

I just read the DPCA's standards, and I am assuming that their standards are more or less for the 'perfect' Doberman Pinscher, and the standards for ears is:
Ears normally cropped and carried erect. The upper attachment of the ear, when held erect, is on a level with the top of the skull.
I don't see how that interprets to be long, straight, medium, curvy, whatever. Normally cropped. What's not "a good crop" or inappropriate about any of the dogs shown on any of these posts?

it may just be me, but i really really like this crop the wide bell into a crisp point. it makes him look strong and gives his head a broad appearance. some may flame me for saying this, but it wont be the first time I've angered someone and I'm positive it wont be the last.

Lots of old threads resurrected lately.

In the photos, I think Chase has a blocky, masculine head and he has a lot of bone, so he'd look strong no matter what crop he had. I personally don't think longer ears would make his head look narrow.

well its like when a person wears horizontal stripes it makes them look fat, when you wear vertical stripes its slimming. i personally think the same way with the crop, when its long with a narrow bell it slims the head, i think chase would look awfully silly with a long crop myself. when the bell is broad the the crop is short it widens the head.

by no means will my princess be getting a short crop, i am just voicing my opinion as I've noticed a lot of people do on this forum my little jewel will be getting the royal treatment of a medium crop with a slightly wider bell from a artist/vet Dr.Horne from the panhandle of Texas. free hand no stencils.

I really love you dogs ear crop. I think I also like a lot of shape like you. My puppy has him crop apt for monday the 17th. How can I get a picture to show the vet?

My girl already came cropped (and with a nasty pocket on one ear unfortunately), and I consider it perfect. The best crop ever.
Also, most dobes have almost the same crop here, whereas almost every dobe in this thread has a unique one!
This is my girls crop, I think it would be considered a medium?

I've noticed our crops in Canada seem to be slightly shorter than the Americans, even for our long show crops, but I still felt like medium was more manageable for my first Dobe, provided that the vet thought it would suit her head. But I used the pictures as a general idea. So here is the result at 5 months old:

I think Chase is truly a very good example of a GOOD short/military/working crop for a Doberman. It suits him very well, it's very masculine and compliments his head. I think he would look a little silly with a long show crop, personally. A medium crop with bell but shape could also work. Still he is so dreamy with this one!

Short or medium....it is the shape that matters. All part of an artistic vet.

Does she have some Doggles? The way she's squinting, it looks like she could use them.

What Rosemary said. And hopefully you're putting sunblock on the nose and it's a good idea, if out in sun for any length of time to put a tee shirt on them. Albinos are proven to be much more susceptible to cancer.

Me too! Whats with so much of the curve of the ear flap being left these days? I like a sharper point and cleaner line. The new crops are still beautiful, but if I was chosing a crop on a small eared dobie, I'd still go for a sharper line in balance with the head, rather than trying to make it look longer by leaving more of the natural round in tact.

We love our boy Jack's crop. Would you all consider that medium or long? We were concerned too because we had pockets, and he's got a small bell, so we couldn't keep posts in very long.
