I had my breeder's vet do the ears, but that was not the end of it. One ear fell and I had to tape it up untill Rudy was 6 months -- after his teething phase. I paid her $200 for the ears, but in that photo, they look perfect, but I had a lot of work and taping to do after that!!! Usually you have to tape untill at least 6 months. Most fail because people give up on posting the ears.
