Somewhat curious to find out a bit more, I had a shufti at Wikipedia, and found this handy page and world map. I'm not sure what all the gray bits are... lack of data, maybe?

In the U.S. it's allowed, and very common for certain breeds. I believe it is more traditional now...a carry over from hunting breeds that had tails/ears docked to protect 'em from burrs etc. in the field. We've had Cockers and Springers for years, and here, one would be hard pressed to find a breeder that didn't do this, although personally I would leave 'em intact. I really love the look of your dogs Artistic...but to an American eye, they sure look different smile. Just out of curiosity, would a breeder or vet remove the "dew claws"?
