  1. Ear Cropping and Posting
    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...
  2. New member introduction
    Hello Everyone, I'm picking up my first Dobie this weekend so I'm VERY excited. His ears are cropped and the breeder isn't exactly close to where I live which is Washington DC so it will be my responsibility to tape them which I'm a little nervous about. I've watched and read numerous videos...
  3. 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...
  4. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hello all, I was wondering if there was anyone in the Austin, Texas area that is able to help me with posting my pups ears? I've noticed the list and contacted jennie but her last activity was almost 5 months ago so i wanted to put it in the thread as well. I've had a dobie before and it didnt...
  5. Ear Cropping and Posting
    So my boy turned 10 weeks today and was picked up from the vet yesterday, he got his ears cropped. I had to hold back my tears when the vet handed me him because I could immediately see how strange his ears had been wrapped and how they were uneven in shapes! I am not going to re-crop because I...

    Hey guys, New to the forum but not to Dobes. I just got my second dobe Gunner. My first dobe Barron unexpectedly passed away a few months ago. So Im a much more nervous mama this time around.

  7. Puppy Corner
    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...
  8. Ear Cropping and Posting
    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...
  9. Puppy Corner
    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...

  11. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hello, If you live near Visalia, CA 93291 I would love some help. I think I have been doing ok, but I cannot find Jonas Tape and my little girls ears seem to be getting sore. I change the posts every 3 days, tampons work best, I cannot get the backer rod to stay in. I also use the caldesene...
