  1. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hi everyone, I adopted a dobby who is 14 weeks old. Her previous owner had her ears docked and had been posting them for about half a month. I noticed the tape she was using was pulling her ear fur out and some scars that had formed. Has anyone had any luck with using tensor bandages instead...

    Hello everyone I’m new to the forum and a first time Doberman owner. We cropped PHX ears when he was about 11 weeks. It’s been two months of posting. (driving 38 min) to the vet who does the cropping and posting. Although I believe they did a good job with the actual cropping of PHX ears they...

    Hi friends! I took down Hurricane’s posting this week and his ears are super dirty with this deep brown stuff. It smells like ear wax, not stinky or yeasty and he doesn’t seem bothered but I’m worried. He had a vet check up yesterday and they said he was all good so how do I clean his ears of...

  8. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hello, I recently got my first Doberman and I have had quite the time learning to post ears. After finally feeling like I got down the method, I noticed today that my puppy, Puck, had a sore spot rubbed on his ear to where it seems to be bleeding. I immediately took off his posts as soon as I...
  9. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hi there! So I have a puppy a little over 6 months old. I did get her ears cropped around 3 months old. I’ve been very consistent about keeping her ears posted with the backer rod technique. However, she tends to remove them on her own. I finally found a tape that works and she hasn’t been...

    Hi! New dobbie owner, so I’m a rookie at this. Anyway, I have a 16 week old female Doberman. I have been posting her ears since we got her around 10/11 weeks. I was having issues with the backer rod method for she would rip them out. Ended up putting a cone around her head and that only helped...

    Hi! I recently got my Doberman puppy who is 3 1/2 months old and her ears are cropped. I'm trying to find either a veterinarian or someone who's experienced with ear wrapping to re-wrap my dog's ears. She keeps scratching them and tries to get them off so after this wrap we're going to give her...
  12. Ear Cropping and Posting
    So my vet recommended that I post the ears for a week and let them breath for 2-3 days. Is this a good idea or should I continuously post them ?
  13. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hello, It’s been a few since “Adonis” our 5 month old Doberman had his ear crop procedure. At first his (once they were healed) ears would perk up and be in that position all day. Though recently as of a month or so his ears only stand up for a few minutes before flapping to their sides. They...

    My pup had his stitches taken out yesterday and the vet tech messed with his cup he had on after I asked them to leave it be. He is still healing from his ear crop, so I can’t post yet. But I’ve retaped his ears about 4 times now to the cup and the tape just won’t stick. But I’m worried the...

    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...
  18. 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...
  20. 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...
