All ear cropped dogs born after 30 June 2009 cannot be shown regardless of the dog's country of birth. Cropped dogs born before 1 July 2009 can only be shown if the dog has been born in a country where ear cropping is permitted. (Danish bred ear cropped dogs born after 1 January 1985 cannot be shown).
It may be possible to procure further information at the show secretariat regarding the state of affairs of ear cropping in other FCI countries. Tail docked dogs born after 1 June 1996 cannot be shown, regardless of the dog's country of birth. The prohibition also includes dogs that have been docked for veterinary reasons, irrespective of whether a veterinary certificate is presented.
