There is no reason to declaw a puppie. Yes, taking the dew claw off is something I would do, because it rips out easily. But for the other claws...no.

NO!...Removing the dew claws when they are newborn pups is one thing but declawing completely?...That would involved amputating parts of the toes & that is horrible!

No they can not be declawed.
And the only thing recommended to remove is back floppy Dewclaws as they can get caught on things and rip off.
Dog's need claws.

Why in the world...??!!!
If it you're worried about your floors and furniture, then don't have animals. You can teach your dog not to be on the furniture and if you keep the dogs nails trimmed, they don't scratch floors.
Whoever informed you that declawing a dog is an option, is completely out to lunch. It's even outlawed in some cities in Ca. when it comes to cats.
The only case I'd agree with it if it was a newborn puppy or a if the dewclaw was injured to the point of needing amputation. Both of my dogs have dew claws and it has never caused any problems.
