Factual errors 

The entire plot turns on a completely erroneous "fact" - that Australian shepherd puppies are born without tails. This is not true. Their tails are removed, or "docked", when they are a few days old.

Miscellaneous 

When they are in the office Monk says "What time is it?" Natalie replies " Uh, 1:15." Later Mr. Monk said, Oh it's 1:22, we'd better get back." When in reality, only 2 minutes had passed.

Spoilers 

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Factual errors 

Australian Shepherds are not born without tails, as mentioned a few times in this episode. Their tails are docked shortly after birth. This factual error is the basis for the only evidence linking the murderer to his crime.
