  1. Ear Cropping and Posting
    So my boy is five months old and his ears are straight I’d say 80 to 90% of the time, but when he’s super alert or excited they tip in. It’s almost like a phantom pocket that only shows when he does this. Any recommendations? Is this behavior of a puppy? Is it head size? Or should we keep...
  2. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Puppy folds its ears voluntarily backwards and sidways voluntarily on some occasions only . Otherwise the ear stands upright is it comman to fold the ears and also there is crease on left ear where he folds his ears . I've been posting him since the past 9 weeks,he is 5½ months old
  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...

    This is my Doberman Dior. She just turned 10 weeks old and will be having her ears cropped at 12 weeks. The vet mentioned the fold on her left ear when discussing cropping the ears. Do pockets form before the ears are cropped? I understand that if it’s a pocket then I will post it with the...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. Ear Cropping and Posting
    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...
  8. Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hi guys, first time owner here Pup has been with us for 4/5 days and it’s time to post his ears up. I let him settle in the house for a bit and kept touching all parts of him during especially his ears so when we go to post he would be comfortable. This seemed to work as when we got him on the...
  9. Ear Cropping and Posting
    I use the backer rod method, but with straws instead to keep it light, but stiff. I used to wrap smaller straws with gauze to pad and allow give, but now i use a larger straw and no padding on the sides. I wrap a 3 × 3 gauze pad around the end for padding in the bell of the ear tape the straw...

    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?
  11. Ear Cropping and Posting
    I need to wash my puppy but how long should I wait to post her ears again?
  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
    I've read countless times to post pup's ears at 10 and 2. When i look at the pinned ear posting tutorials, their puppies have straight posts. It helps to hold the ear at 10 and 2 in order to get the post in, but even if my original taping is mostly vertical, within a day or two, his ears are...
  14. 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...
  15. Ear Cropping and Posting
    I picked up my pup today after her ear crop. She was 100 miles an hour, as usual. I asked the tech why her ears were not racked. He told me that they would stand on their own. I said, no they won't, but he insisted. Is this something new? I previously had a female that was racked for 3-4...

    [EDIT] I'm posting again because I realized I have previously posted this in the wrong subtopic. Sorry for that. Hey there. I know there are probably 1000 topics similar to this one, and I have read them all. Okay, so let me start off by saying that I have a 7-month-old male Doberman. We've...
