Due to significant increase in the cost of ear cropping and travel expenses, I have had to adjust my prices to be more inline with other DPCA breeders. Unfortunately, these costs must be passed on to our customers in the form of a price increase. However, you have an option to save some money if you want cropped ears. If any customer would like to save, I would recommend purchasing at my natural ear price and scheduling an individual crop appointment yourself. This would involve you handling the crop process and payment yourself as opposed to having me do it.
