Hi, Steve & Mary Ann here. The pup is on the way. We live in mentor Ohio , and are looking for some one to crop the ears. Village vet.( Mayfield village) closed ,North Ridge (Madison) dosnt do them any more.
I think the closest crop artist is going to be Dr. Sam Grant in Cincinnati.. I thought he had retired but then someone on this board got a pup done by him so it may not hurt to shoot him an email or give him a call.. [email protected], (513) 232-6900 (Mount Washington Animal Hospital). I'm not sure how far you are from him but it is definitely worth the drive. I could not be happier with my crop from him. See pic below.
And remember that a crop is something you have to look at for the lifetime of your pup so only get it done if you have a crop artist doing it! We have seen many many bad or weird looking crops on pups where the vet claimed they could do a good dobe crop! Good luck with your ears
Your breeder should have had them done. If your breeder is not having them done.
Make sure the Vet you choose is experienced in doing Dobermann's ears and how long they havebeen doing them.
Try and get some referrals.
