In the past dogs were docked for spurious reasons, such as to prevent rabies, to prevent tail injuries while fighting, and in some countries to avoid paying tax as only the dogs with a long tail were considered for tax purposes (Wansbrough, 1996). Tail docking had no prophylactic effect in reducing tail injuries in the study of Darke et al. (1985).
