How Long Does It Take For Ears To Stand?

So Rani was cropped by her previous owner. They posted them but their other dog kept pulling them out, so they just stopped. When I picked her up on Thurs night my husband and I posted her ears again. Today it came off, and her ears are standing (so 3 days) although I know they would not stay and need to be up longer. She is almost 5 months old and I'm curious how many weeks it may take for them to stay up on her own. If it matters she hasn't teethed yet, and we are giving her lots of stuff to chew on to help.

need more info, and to see a picture. how long is the crop, how much bell is there, when were they done, how thick are her ears? post a picture, we would love to see her and someone might be able to give you an estimate. but it would only be an estimate, every dog is different.
by the way, welcome to DT, you will find there are several members from Ontario here.

For our dog we were told they would stand somewhere around 6 months but I would recommend to at least wait until she's done teething.

Our dog is now 9 months old. She's been getting her ears taped since she was probably 7 or 8 weeks when the breeder got her ears cropped. Her ears are still posted because they're not where we want them at yet. We've heard some people who have had to take their dog's ears to 1 year. We're probably going to have to do that as well.

The reason her ears are taking so long is because she has really long ears :/ .

Your dog most likely won't have to take that long but just be patient and give it a little more time just to make sure. The last thing you'd want is to take her ears down and have them flop down a month later.

Like graciface said its so different from dog to dog. Aesa got her ears done when she was around 6.5 - 7 weeks and her ears were standing before she even was 5 month.
Apollo got his ears cropped when he was 10 weeks old and was done i think with 6.5 - 7 month

When you absolutely think/know that the ears are done..... post for another two weeks and then you're finished. You won't regret it.

Thats a question that cannot be answered and anyone who tries is only guessing, each dog is different as well as the crop.

I would repost ears after one hour, not 3 days. My puppy has a long show cut. I change the posts every 4 days. Then I clean them and let them stand for an hour to air out before reposting them. He is 14 or 15 weeks old and the ears look great.

Posting ears

I agree with Ziva's Dad. Each dog is different and the length of the crop comes into play as well. My sons dobergirl Cola, her ears stood in 8 days. I posted for 4 days, took them down for about a 1/2 a day, then reposted for 4 more days and she was done. Yeah, that was unusually quick. Normally it takes much longer than that and I would guess the average time for me would be about 5 to 8 weeks of posting to make them stand. Here are some pictures of her Doberman Breeders Sierra Dobie Farms Doberman Importers
