Have the bans on tail docking been instituted for the wellbeing of dogs including the Australian Shepherd? Or is it part of the political movement that funds mandatory spay/neuter bills such as AB 1634 (http://www.petpac.net/) in the California State Senate, and other proposed laws that take away your rights to own and enjoy animals.
