  1. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hello friends, I am from India. I am a first time dog owner. Yesterday (31th August), I cropped my 78 day old puppies ears. He had short ears, so I went in for long crop. I thought what's the point of medium or short crop if his ears are small. The vet wants to take off the stitches after 8...

    Hi all, I just brought home my puppy last week and on Friday, I had his ears cropped. This is my first Doberman and my first cropping experience and I'm at a loss. Since going through this process, I have looked at many of the forums and now understand that the breeder ideally should have...

    Hello DT, Longtime lurker here. I recently got my baby girl Nubia from a BYB. She is 9 weeks and just got her ears cropped today. I have attached some images. I've seen some people do the cuphead method but my vet told me to just let them hang until the stitches come out (Which is planned for...

    I am new to the world of Dobermans, though I have always been intrigued by the breed. They are elegant, beautiful, and tough at the same time. They steal my attention whenever they show up. So after losing my 14 year old pup this past year, I have decided to research more about a potential Dobe...

    Currently have a Doberman pup who just turned seven months. Her ears are only recently standing (backer rod method) and one seems to be somewhat crooked at the top. I don't want to keep using the whole backer rod if I don't have to. Any tips for how to straighten it out, or alternatively, do...

    I know this is a repeat question because I have seen some of the older posts but honestly got a headache from scrolling through all of the arguing in the posts plus the ones I found for Louisiana are from a few years ago Without any bashing or rudeness, I am just looking for recommendations to...

    Hi, My uncle got his 3 months old dobie's ear cropped and I do not know if it's normal for the ears to look this way. This is our first dobie and first cropping, so we do not have any idea. We had it done through a friend who's been cropping ears for 12 years and he told us to let the ear heal...

    Hello! So this is my first doberman and I have a lot of questions about his ears. Basically, I just want to know if we are posting his ears right, because I feel like they look bat-ish and they seem to have a wider base than some of the other puppy crops I see. Here's a quick backstory about his...

    Hi everyone, I recently took my 10 week dobie to the vet to get his ears cropped and all went well. We are on day 3 post surgery and the ears are healing well and he's as playful as ever (though I'm limiting his activity so he can rest and heal). My question is around the method of posting...

    First time dobie owner! So happy to have found this forum. Our doberman is 18 weeks this week and still having trouble with the ears. Lately the postings stay on for 4 days and then the ear wax seems to make the tampon pop out the bottom of the ear. The outside of the ear with the fur seems to...

    Hey guys. I have an 8.3 wk old male dobe. He just got his ears cropped Friday (July 10). Everytime I post his ears, whatever I used to put in his ear keep coming out. I used tampons and they worked for about 2 days. I think that is the best so far but can y'all recommend me any other post styles...

    My fiance and I just got a Doberman puppy. He is 8 weeks old. We have been searching for a vet in the Chattanooga, Tn area that is experienced in ear cropping but haven't had much luck. About how much should we expect to pay? And can anyone recommend a vet in my area who does ear cropping? I...

    Hello Everyone, I know I am asking the million dollar questions, and found a couple forums on DT but I want your opinion on Dr Jezbera's cropping in SoCAL. If you've had your Dobies ears cropped by him, I would LOVE to see!!!! I feel this is a HUGE part of owning a Dobie, and I need some...

    It's been 5 months since my girl's ears were cropped at 12 weeks of age. Since her crop and posting, its been a job and a half posting because she tries to find every way possible to rip or scratch the posts and cause irritation in her ears. At this stage, her ears still aren't standing...

    I am a first time dobe owner and my sweet boy Lima got his ears cropped by a vet who has 32 years of cropping experience. He was miserable with the bandages of the surgery but as soon as the were off he was completely fine and was running around happily while the skin was allowed to heal (my vet...
