So... My thoughts.

First lose the cone collar. In my experience, with respect to ears, it creates more issues than it solves.

Leaving a dog's ears down for 1-2 days between posting is really not a good idea. at least, in my opinion. My first Dobes vet, many years ago, told me that a day down was often an extra week of posting. He was a show cropper and a Doberman judge. I still subscribe to his advice. So, I would take the pup to the vet with the ears still posted or having just been taken down. Ideally the ears (IMO) should be reposted as soon as you can clean and dry them. Maybe an hour or so.

Lastly... Thats an awful lot of tape. And, I would prefer to see the ear tips more wide separated. Say like in a 10 o'clock-2 o'clock position. They appear to be pretty much upright.

Oh.. One more thing. I would gather your info and supplies well in advance of taking over your pup's posting. It's really nice to have all your ducks in a row.

I like posting. It is a unique experience to bond with your new puppy. Just make it rewarding for him by being prepared, relaxed and praising.
