Dead rabbit I have stated my logical reason behind me being against all of the above apart from for medical reasons.
But here it is again Actually the bark of a dog has it's reasons, it allows them to communicate from a distance, say for instance you took your dog for a walk in the woods he/she got lost and couldn't see you how would you find them as they couldn't bark to tell the rest of their 'pack' where they were. Plus if the dog was trained right there would be enough barking to warrent a noise complaint. Taking the ears of a dog will reduce their ability to hear as they will not be able to funnel/catch the normal amount of sound waves plus with out any ears or a tail how are they going to be able to communicate. As stated above horses need their tails to protect them from flies they also use their tails to communicate with other animals.
I also forgot to mention a dog needs its tail for balance, I know my collies wouldn't be able to do their jobs with out their tails. Cats need their claws as well so they can hold onto things when they fall or are jumping, if my cat didn't have claws I think she would have broken her back by now with the number of near misses when she justs.
Dead rabbit I still fail to see the health benifits to debarking a dog, you to the dog right and they will not bark overly much.
