Although tail docking was banned in Scotland in 2007, the government plans to introduce an exemption to allow the tail docking of spaniel puppies and certain other working breeds.
Supporters argue it can prevent much more serious, life-threatening injuries later in life, however, animal rights charities argue the figures don't add up and the risk is not worth the pain and cruelty of the practice.
