    How do I know when finished posting?

    Her ears were cropped at 10 weeks. She is 3.5 months old now. I'd say that she has a medium crop. I have read that posting should continue until at least 6 months old. I think that this is because 6 months is the time by which the ear cartilage has hardened. Posting has been difficult lately...

    Ear Posting Help

    Hi! I have a 6 month old doberman named Weslie. I cannot get her ears to stand straight. I tried the breathe right strips and she ripped them off. Tampons, popsicle sticks, just tape.

    Need help with posting method for 1 y/o!

    So long story short I’ve been terrible about posting, haven’t tried in something like 8mos and now my boy is 13mos. One ear stands and one flops. That one has been flopping for the whole 8mos, though his cartilage is still insanely soft and he can make that ear stand if it’s perked up. I stopped...

    Vitamin c for ears

    Hey all I’m going to start giving my puppy Ester - C vitamin c. He is 5.5 months old and the vitamin c is 1000mg per tablet. Should I start off giving him 500mg per day? Or 1000mg per day?

    Question about my pups ear repost

    I reposted my pups ears, and right away after I noticed the post is kind of sticking out the ear canal I thought I stuck it down all the way it must have got out when we were doing the taping.. my question is if it’s still fine how it is or should I redo it, because (to me at least) they still...

    Ear posting progress

    Hi everyone! Loki has been doing MUCH better with his ear postings. He sits still longer and isn’t afraid of me grabbing on them. I’ve been trying to normalize handling them everyday, even when they’re taped. I’ll grab them and wiggle them a little and give them a sniff while I’m there to make...

    Hello everyone! I’m new here, my name is Paige. My fiancé and I brought home our BEAUTIFUL little boy Loki a month ago today. He had his ear crop surgery 2 weeks ago, and this vet was HORRIBLE! My regular vet recommended them since they don’t have space for elective surgeries due to COVID...

    Is continued posting needed?

    I am a new doberman owner and am wondering if I should continue with posting? The vet said he thought posting was no longer needed but I feel they're still floppy when not at attention and am not sure if that's how they're supposed to look when not at attention..

    Testing Ears Between Postings??

    I’m picking up my Doberman puppy soon and I’ve been reading up on posting methods and tips. I’ve heard from one breeder that you should “test” the ear’s strength (leave them unposted for as long as they stand on their own) in between posting in order to see how the ears are progressing and...
