What a handsome boy...
About the post... Actually not bad for a beginner!
I would use less tape.
If you are going to bridge, I would place the ears somewhat wider. You have them vertical.
Generally a 10-12 (clock hands) spacing is considered ideal by a lot of people. I would also lower the bridge to just above the skull.
If you have not read/seen member greenkouki's visual tutorial on posing ears, please do. In my opinion, it is the gold standard for contemporary ear posting. https://www.dobermantalk.com/ear-cro...acker-rod.html
Best to you and your pup.
BTW. Maybe I missed it, but does he have a name yet?
So I took off (laboriously) the tape from Tyrion's ear posts. Mind you, it was a lousy post...BUT I did it with the breeder standing over me and instructing me on how to do this, every step of the way. He was fixing my "work" as I was trying to figure out how to do the posts. I was LOOSELY taping, as he kept telling me to do.
THANK GOD I unwrapped the posts today, just now! There are 3 sores, two on the inner "leather" flaps, one on each ear, and one on one of the natural folds near the base of one of the ears.
ALSO, I found that the ear the breeder did has a healing major cut at the top. He must have snipped off the tip a while back because it looks as if it is almost healed. He did it so I could not really see what he was doing.
WHAT DO I DO?? Do I re-post my baby's ears today? I have neosporin that I put on gauze and placed on the sores. Should I go ahead and continue with gently trying to post his ears with the neosporin gauze laid over the sores?
I am so upset, especially since I know I did not cause these sores. Again, I thank God that I took the posts off this evening!
Last question, how do you get the tape off easily? I had to resort to using a little bit of baby oil to get the tape loosened. Thank goodness he is such a sweet and easy going little guy. He was so patient with me.
Any help would be so greatly appreciated! Please do not bash me for not realizing that there was something wrong with the way the breeder was doing things with me. I am soooooo upset right now. I cannot stop crying.
