I have a 10 month old beauty named Azaria "Zari". I researched extensively and found a great breeder to import her from Eastern Europe. She is working on being a great protection dog and well mannered pet. We have relied greatly on this forum for advice and opinions on a variety of topics in the last 7 months. I appreciate the love and expertise you all have for our furry best friends!
So why am I finally posting something? I have read a lot of different threads and watched videos about posting methods, posting complications, when to stop posting, etc and I keep hearing just stick with it and they will stand! After all, she's only 10 months. But, my babys ears do stand great probably 85% of the time. When she's being active (out training or at home training, running around the house, at the park, hiking) her ears stand beautifully and my trainers love her ears, but sometimes when she's sleepy or lounging around the right ear droops over a bit. The cartilage doesn't seem as thick on that side. The right side flops a little more when she's running than the left.
When we went on Christmas vacation the posts needed to come out 2 or so days before I had planned and I did not have supplies to repost. That was about 7 months and the left ear never needed them again but the right side did and was posted as soon as we returned home. It always seemed more problematic. Got sores once for a night or two that had to heal at prob 5 months, then again at 8.5 months and thats when I stopped posting.
Im wondering, will the cartilage harden as she gets older and that will start to happen less and less or do I have to keep posting for it to match the other side? I posted it up for 4 days recently and she seemed to not hold it up as well as before when I had to take it off.
Thank you for any advice!
