~Bouvier des Flandres~
Why Unique Names?
Bouviers are from the French part of Belgium and my husband is from the Friesland part of The Netherlands so I decided on names from the The Netherlands.
Tails Docked and Dewclaws Removed?
What about ear infections?
Ear cropping has been illegal in Europe, including the country they come from, for over 20 years and it is not an issue there. I have had 5 with natural ears without ear infection issues and I know of another breeder that does not have issues with ear infections. It is for looks; otherwise, breeds such as poodles, cockers, etc. would be cropped too.
I am privileged to work with a vet and if she says to not use a dog in my breeding program than I won’t. I want healthy puppies so I am not line breeding or trying tobreeding out issues. Breeding out issues does require testing. My males are not related to my females. I have a male specifically for Fauke’s daughters.
