I am hearing so many conflicting ideas on whether ears should be bridged or not. My breeder told me that I should bridge right to the end of posting with tape. Other ear posting sites say to use a solid bridge made of backer rod until over 6 months. I have seen on this site that bridging should be stopped much earlier. My pup is almost 13 weeks old. I have removed the bridge for 3-4 days now and he seems to hold his ears straight up just fine. The backer rods seem to remain in place much better without the bridge. He has a fairly long show crop. Is there any time frame or indications to watch for to let me know that a bridge is/is not needed? Thanks!
