Contact a good breeder in the Seattle area and ask them for a referral. Most vets don't crop ears, and of the ones who will most do a poor job and they're aftercare is not good either, and often leads to the puppy suffering unnecessarily.

Faye Strauss lives in the Seattle area, maybe she can tell you who is a good vet to go to. You can see her dogs and their ears by googling Sherluck Dobermans. Jim Anable is also in Seattle, he runs the yahoo bluedobes list, and might have a referral for you.

Faye's email address is included in the breeder referral section of the Puget Sound DPC website. There are also a number of other breeders in the area listed..I'm sure one of them would be able to give you some suggestions. That url is:

I could be wrong, but I think a lot of breeders in OR/WA use a vet in Canada for cropping, but I don't know his name.

Yep. I don't think it's difficult, tho..dogs go to Canada for the weekend to be shown all the time. Probably the most you'd need would be a rabies certificate for dogs over 4 months and maybe a health certificate for puppies under 4 months. I know when I took a dog to Mexico for a show weekend all we needed was a rabies certificate-and no one ever asked to see it.

Dogs that are between 3-8 months of age require a rabies certification for entering Canada, stating the breed, age, and what type of rabies vaccine was used.
Go to www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/travel/vistors-e.html
and click dogs for more information.
