    I wanted some advice on what we should do for this upcoming week. My family has a lake trip scheduled, and of course Loki is coming. I don’t expect him to get into the water at all, he hates it, but should I leave his ears out of the posts for the day just in case? We are going to the lake on his regular posting day, so I would be taking his ears down, cleaning and reposting that day anyways.

    I just want to see what you all would suggest for us. Thank you!!

    If you don't think he'd go in the water on his own or if you don't intend to take him in, personally, I would post. Keep in mind, if they do get wet, they need to come off immediately.

    They look great!

    I agree that I would keep them posted since you can lose a lot of progress if you don't.

    Have fun!

    If you are scheduled to take his ears down that day anyway, I don't see the harm in leaving them down for the time you will actually be near or in the water. It's a great time in life to introduce a pup to water. Maybe there will be other dogs who swim to show him the ropes, kids splashing around having fun enticing him into the water, or maybe you might even be able to ease him into making his first doggy paddles :)
