Hello,

Dog tail amputation requires a team of Vet surgeons and it is not a task that could be taken care of at home because of the possible hemorrhage during the surgery and you may kill your dog.

Besides this is a painful surgery and its not really a ethical thing to amputate your dog's tail without the proper anastasia.

I suggest that you consult with a certified veterinarian about this issue .

By the way I have never heard of docking Dalmatian's tail so I believe it would be better to keep it as it is.

Good Luck

" Tail docking occurs in one of two ways. The first involves constricting the blood supply to the tail with a rubber ligature for a few days until the tail falls off." I get this from wekepeidia..What do you think about this?

Well it depends on the size of the dog and the type of its tail.

I have never seen this method myself. My friend took his Rottweiler to a vet and his vet docked the rottie's tail using the surgical method.

But please note that if you really wanna do this please take your dog to a vet and do it as soon as you can cause if the dog gets larger this task will be more risky.

Good luck.

It depends,

it could vary from ~17 lbs (7-8 KG) to 26 lbs (11-12 KG) , but if you can not see your puppy's ribcage (without touching) so she is in a good shape.

I asked one of my friends to post an article on some tips about keeping dalmatians.

I will inform you when he has done it.

Good luck.
