    Dudley's breeder removed them.
    If their is a chance of them tearing, I would hate to see the pain I am glad that my breeder removes them.

    I would highly not recommend having them removed from an adult dog. I did have them removed from an adult dog once and he was in so much pain and refused to walk for a few weeks. I do however always remove them from my Crested puppies (at 3 days). They most of the time don't squirm or cry until the quick stop is applied.

    In the puppy classes I assist, there's a terrier mix who has dew claws that stick out and flop about terribly. I can see how they could easily get caught and rip.

    Cedar's are really tight close to her legs. It makes it harder to trim them, but it certainly keeps them out of harm's way.
