My first ear posting and new pics

Hey guys I posted Issa’s ears for the first time last week and they turned out okay. Just need more practice. I’m going to have to postpone posting because she got a scar from playing with another puppy just at the base of her left ear. Nothing serious, the vet said just wait about two weeks. At 14weeks(3months) she weighs 28lbs and is as playful as ever.

I would recommend doing full posts that go down into the ear on her since you have pockets at the base of her ears- they are "sagging" at the top of her head, if that makes sense. You will need to stretch those out. With your post I would also recommend strongly you reinforce it with zip ties and duct tape so it's very firm. After a few more post jobs this will give you much straighter ears. In the ear crop and posting section I made a tutorial on how to post ears and I think it would be really helpful to you. I would use smaller backer rod too.

If you decide to do a bridge like you have been, make sure you put it lower to the base of her head so it won't get caught on stuff. The bridge should be a little looser too- the ears need to be more like this \ / and less like this | | . Also, if that is vet wrap please don't use it. It can constrict the blood flow and do a lot more harm than good.

Thanks for the feedback. I understand everything you mentioned except the zip ties. Where would I zip tie and to what?

If you place the zip tie(s) underneath the duct tape you wrap around your backer rod to make the post it will make the post nice and stiff, but still lightweight. See here for a pic of what I'm talking about https://www.dobermantalk.com/ear-cro...acker-rod.html
