My KCI Registered rottweiler pup having 20 fingers (dew claws)can participate in dog shows or not. Is dew claws a disqualification to participate in dog shows.

Hi Vinayvir
I’m not certain about the KCI regulations in terms of show faults, but the AKC requires that the rear dewclaws must be removed – and the dewclaws on the front legs may (or may not be) removed if a Rottie is to be shown.

You will need to check with the Indian Kennel Club to be sure.
