  1. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Beau has been here 4 weeks (Saturday) is 15 weeks old (on Thursday’s vet check was 39.6 lbs and is about 19.25 at the withers), and is teething like a monster. His teeny tiny front teeth are out as are a few molars and his gummy nibbles are adorable. The ankle chomps out of nowhere as I walk by...

    After ear crop surgery does everyone start posting ears themselves? We had surgery done about 2 hours away and cant keep going there for posting I have tried and seem to be getting a little better. I read they may need to be posted thru teething, not sure. There is not a vet in my area to post...

    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...
  4. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hi everyone, My little pup just got to 4 months and her ear posting is going terribly. I had a previous thread explaining the issues with the crop and removal and etc. but this will focus on posting. Her posting began quite late due to the issues from the surgery and she ended up with an ear...

    I am wondering if anyone else had a problem with their dog daycare not allowing their puppy to have its ears posted while with the other dogs. The daycare I just visited said they will not allow Griff to come with his ears posted. Griff is only 12 weeks old and we understand how important...
  6. Ear Cropping and Posting
    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...
  7. Ear Cropping and 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...

    Hey Everyone, I wanted to know what you think about ear postings and the length of time for a long-med crop to post. I paid for aftercare at Dr. Jezbera, and they said they will post them for me for as long as they take to stand. They have posed 5 times (Its been 1month 1 week) and they are...
  11. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hello! Brand spanking new to the forums (other than browsing at all the awesome advise). We've been following Zephyr's tutorial on posting and as this is our first Doberman, we'd like to get opinions on her current set of posted ears. We believe her ears are already standing up great on their...

    Hello all, My husband and I recently had our doberman's ears cropped and have begun the taping process. We have just tried our first taping, using gauze wrapped straws and Zonas tape (this method, since Dr. Bill cropped our pup's ears), and one ear refuses to keep the straw inside. It pops out...

    Hi this is my dog Rusty. I would just like to get your opinion regarding the posts on his ears. Please tell me if I am doing this right because his ears only stand when he is on alert mode. If he is not on alert mode, his ears are like the wings of an airplane, it sort of flops a little. I've...
  14. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Our 6-month-old had her ears cropped in late May. Since then, we have taken her to the vet to have her ears rolled, or rolled them ourselves using the tampons. Her ears still aren't standing. One is up a little, the other is down. We don't want to give up, but it feel like we need a different...

    I just got my girl's ears cropped two weeks ago and she's in her posts. However I'm having a problem with the post on the right ear where the base keeps coming out when she shakes her head or is playing with my adult dobie. I've used the foam 1/2" caulk saver that many people have recommended...

    Lima has been off the post for about a week and his ears were perfectly straight. Just yesterday he was running around a field playing and he ears stayed right in place. This morning we woke up to find the picture below and his ears are once again in the posts. What could have possibly caused...

    So my little boy is almost three months now. When I first had his ears cropped the vet that did it used nylon inserts so that I wouldn't have to post. The inserts came out a few weeks later and they were okay, but every time he would see something interesting his ears would go up and cross each...

    So what kind of ear cropping would you recommend for a pet doberman? I know the taller crops take longer and such but I feel vicious for taking alot of his little ears off ( he still has a while before he gets them done of course but as a concerned parent I like to be informed) also their are...
