posting schedule...when to rest ears and for how long

I have been watching back to back posting videos and reading threads and some people let the ears rest one day =then later as the pup grows they let the ears rest up to three days or more

my question is what is the rule on resting the ear from posting...how do you know it's ok to let the ears go that long with no posts?

Everyone has their own method. Go with what works for you and your dog. Early on, I did not let them "rest" or air out for very long. Maybe a half hour to an hour. Later on (after she was 4-5 months) I would leave them without posts all day, but because they were standing pretty well and I could tell we were on track. I would post for about 3 days (or until they got wet or dirty.)

3-5 days in posts, no more than 45 min to an hour between postings. Post through teething and then check for standing - I've been told.

I just finished posting recently, but during the posting phase, my puppy was never out of the posts for more than half an hour-hour at the most ( on rare occasions ). I would clean her ears while she was without them, and start making new posts. As soon as the ears were dry - the posts went in. I changed them every 4-5 days, but there were instances where I would change them every other day, even every day sometimes if the posts would get wet/very dirty etc.

If you were to plug a nostril with kleenex it wouldn't stop your body from producing and draining/pushing out mucous, would it?

Thus, the posts don't prevent the ear's natural process of producing wax and naturally pushing/draining it out. If you post without keeping the ears clean your pup will end up with an ear infection.

Did you buy your puppy from a responsible breeder? If so, have you asked them for or did they give you any advice or directions for taping the ears? What did your ear surgeon tell you?

1. I hardly ever have to clean anything out of Poison's ears - her absorbent paper towel posts absorb all the ear gunk for me!

2. How long you leave ears out of posts depends on age, genetics, etc. Poison's ears have been out of posts since yesterday and they're still standing perfectly. She's 4 months old. I'll probably post them again tonight or tomorrow... she has fantastic cartilage already, and I don't like having posts in when it's raining.

so talk with your breeder about this, as they will be able to help you a great deal.
