  1. Ear Cropping and Posting
    First time Doberman owner, and this issue has just arisen. it’s got me completely flustered and upset that I did this to the little man. I’m even more upset that I lost my sense of smell about two or so weeks ago and I feel like I would’ve noticed sooner if that hadn’t happened. Enzo is a...

  3. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hello! I've been reading here a lot about how to post since I recently got my first Doberman and had to learn posting ears. Currently, we noticed that one ear has very huge ear pockets, and I assume that due to that, her ear flops over her head (inwards completely). In addition, previously, I...

    Hey everyone! Apollo is 8-9 months old, he was given to us. His tail was cut but the previous owner did not want to crop his ears. I was wondering if it’s still possible to make his ears stand nice n pointy or if we shouldn’t even bother?

  6. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hello. My doberman puppy was born November 2021 and came home at 8 weeks with stitches still in his ears from cropping. We started posting around 9-9.5 weeks old using the backer rod method on this site. I have had the posts off for 1 week and have had breathe right strips on the tip. The last...

    Hi everybody - i think this is is a shot in the dark, but any advice is appreciated. I currently have a 10 month old Doberman. His ears were cropped at about 12 weeks, but the posting wasn’t consistent. Is it too late for him to have erect ears? I have heard that it’s too late. I have also heard...
  8. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hello! My doberman's left ear is taking the longest to stand straight up. After taking the post out, it would kind of stand up straight but when he's relaxed it would fall back down mid-way. I've been posting them frequently, having it rest for a day then back to posting. I'm using backer rod...
  9. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hello! I am about 24 days (not that I'm counting or anything) away from my pup finally coming to me. She will be already cropped but I'll be honest, I'm a little nervous about posting. I have read the posting tutorials but, call me paranoid, I'd feel better if I could talk or actually meet...
  10. Ear Cropping and Posting
    I’ve been posting my puppy’s ears. The surgeon said keep doing it until about six months of age when her teeth come in. That’s fine. I change them every five days or when they get wet. Backer rod didn’t work so I’m using tampons. I notice when I take them off, they fold down some, but if I say...
  11. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hi All, Had my pup just about a month now and I have basically had to repost his ears (using backer rod method) every day. On two occasions they lasted two nights but that has been the max. I’ve taken all the tips that I’ve seen on here, pencil-like ends, screw all the way in, pull the ear taut...

    Hey everyone ! This is my first time posting my 3 month old dobbie's ears, I was wondering if this looks okay. I'm paranoid about not doing it properly, any advice is appreciated. I started 3 days ago with paper tape along with medical tape, now I'm using this "Self Stick Adhesive Tape Roll...
  13. Ear Cropping and Posting
    We've been posting for 5 months now and his left ear doesn't want to stand longer than 5 minutes and begins to look soft at that crease. I always have posted immediately after taking them down. His ear leather is also pretty thick. Does his ear shape look alright? his ears are relaxed. They...

    Hi everyone, I’m a new member and as of a couple weeks ago a new owner of a Doberman puppy! I’ve been dealing with the normal issues of raising a puppy but the one thing that really has been the most pain is posting his ears and I’m afraid they won’t stand at. I got him shipped in from out of...
  15. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hi All! I am new to DT. My 16-week old doberman, (female, black and tan) had her ears cropped at the beginning of her 11th week. We are now at the posting stage. Our Vet, who did the crop, has been doing the weekly repostings. It looks like the way she affixes the ear to the post is such that...

    I just took off her postings so I could shower her but they were wet from the bottom where it was in her ear. Is that bad?
  17. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hi everyone! I'm hoping to get some feedback on Sherlock's ears as they're progressing. We're definitely not ready to stop posting by any means, but I noticed that his ears aren't quite straight up/parallel when alert. I'm not sure if that's something that I can change in the way I'm posting or...

    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...

    Chloes right ear would not stand. I posted for TWO YEARS AND TWO WEEKS! We saw two different vets and I toyed with the idea of an insert. (Didn't go that route). She did have a "corrective" procedure but that also didn't work. I was ready to throw in the towel. My family was no support. The...
