Crap it is a thumbnail, can't get it bigger and my new password at photobucket isn't working.
Best I can do. You can click on it to make it bigger.

AH HA!!! Finally got my password to work at photobucket
They are big but puppies grow into their ears. He looks much better now at one year.

I prefer an ear with a lot of shape and a medium-long length personally. I really can't think of a good example to show you off the top of my head. but every dog should have somewhat of a unique crop to harmonize all the facial features.

We often get asked who did Lena’s ears, but her breeder won't say. Someone once told me they thought Lena's breeder was doing her own cropping. I hope that's not so, but she did once tell me she had dropped out of vet school. Anyway, I really Lena's crop...

This is probably the best specimen of Dobe I've seen in a book and the crop looks great imho (but I took the pic at an angle, the ears are longer than that). I like how they angle out at the tips:

I guess it's pointless to say Navarre's crop since everyone is partial to their own dog's ears. Or I should say, his one good ear. LOL

Charles does your boy have a crop and flop? Jack did as well, but he could make it stand about 60% of the time. When he was exited, aggitated, hungry, etc.

I think my dog's ears look pretty nice. don't we all. I was sure concerned through the posting months, but they turned out good. My personal preference is the medium crop (instead of the show or the other one - military?), but all look good in their own way.

I like this crop. (I am not trying to steal this picture...It was posted in another thread by KansaDobe) I think it is a litter of their puppies


I like Brownie's crop


I love Red's crop.

I like Cosmo's crop (Brownie's Mom)



I prefer the medium to longer ears. I guess it is really just a personal preference.

I think this bitches name is Cinny? I personally think this is a beautiful crop, I even sent it to my breeder as a reference when she asked what kind of crop I preferred.

I can't look tell me when its over

just came across this strand, there are definitely still some people out there with an artful hand for cropping. The hausenbrook pup owned by andrewred was cropped by Dr.Staples, in London Ontario, he does the majority of dobes in ontario as well as boxers and danes. The man is very good! I was so impressed with how efficient his whole operation is, 8 pups done and alert and ready to go in about 4 hours! no need for pain meds or antibiotics- and they all stand.

I think it's all a matter of personal preference. I find the crops found on most show dogs to be more attractive than pet crops done by everyday vets... but that's not to say that I don't know dogs with bad crops whose ears are part of their "personality".

That said... I like my dogs' crops.





(I'd have liked Ilsa's to be a bit longer, but her ears were naturally very short - can't make ears longer than they start out being!

Tranquility - those crop photos are of a nice pet crop. Those are perfect ears for a dog who won't be doing any sort of showing at all. But Berlin's ears are very nice - lots of style and personality. A really artistic, sensitive vet knows just what ear shaoe and length will complement the individual dog.

The first dog looks almost EXACTLY like the father dog (Fish) of my soon to be puppy, only Fish's ears were not cropped, she asked for them to be left natural. I won't be cropping my puppies either.

I think my favorite crops are the ones done by Dr. Sophia Koster, with the hook at the top of the ear...like Brownie's ears! Love 'em.
