I am really happy that my pups ears are already standing. I took a risk getting his ears cropped so late but I knew I would be super diligent with postings and after care. He is now 23 weeks and his ears are already standing beautifully still going to post for another month or so before I attempt to leave them off. I think I got really lucky for them to stand so quick and im super thankful. Just wanted to share this to get some thoughts on how long i should continue to post. Thank you!

Welcome to DT.

Most dogs need to be posted until they are done teething at around seven months or so.

And you might want to edit your thread title, My first thought was "Who the heck crops an 18 month old dog?!".

Looks great! Please keep us updated on Rusty's ears. As a new Doberman owner, I am plagued with the "YOU MUST EAR CROP AT 8-12 WEEKS OR IT'S OVER" attitude so much that I would've believe Rusty's case was impossible since he already passed his teething stage before the procedure. :LOL:

Yeah... That's the typical advice. But it is not a cut and dried mandate. 8-12 weeks is actually the suggested window of opportunity. It is based on the age span that many cropping surgeons feel that pups will have the best experience with having a successful result for an elective procedure. It has a lot to do with the age based development and hardening of the cartilage the constituent the majority of the ear. An accomplished ear cropper may evaluate each puppy individually, and opt to work outside that timeframe.
