Removing dewclaws is up to the breeder. There is no requirement to remove or not remove. In the US, I would guess it is about 50% leave them, 50% remove them

I have also seen current research on dewclaw removal that has me convinced to never do it again. I am exhausted but will try to post the links if anyone is interested... maybe tomorrow
