Do most breeders dock there tails? Can you chose to buy one without having it done?

5/24/07 Since the breed standard in America is a docked tail it becomes more difficult to find a Weimaraner with a full length tail. All Long Hairs should be left with a full length tail. If you want a smooth coated Weimaraner with a short tail you may be able to find a breeder willing to leave a tail intact if you prepay for the puppy. The problem is normally breeders like to select puppies based on temperament and in our case hunt drive so it is hard to single out a puppy at three days of age. Normally we dock tails at 3 days.
