Natural ear taping experience?

Hi all
Luna is 18 weeks old and we’ve been looking into taping her ears to properly fold downwards instead of the flying nun ears she’s getting.

Ive been putting it off cause I imagine it to be really hard to get them to stay still, we’ve been trying to get her used to being touched in the head/face by working on our “stay” command, but im wondering if maybe with a frozen slow feeder on the wall to keep her entertained would work? Kind of like when you bathe them?
Are we too far along to be able to do that at 18 weeks? I keep seeing a lot of different opinions on how to do it, and what tape to use. I have kinesiology tape, would that work?
Here’s some pictures of what they look like now, thanks in advance!

Wish I could offer some advice, but I don't have any experience with natural ears. Your Luna is a sweetie! I actually think the flying nun ears are cute!

Thank you! She looks like a cute bat right now since she’s still teething but I’ve seen some really funny looking ones out there when they dogs are older. Nothing bad with that either but since I found out you can also tape them down i really want to try it!
First dobe so every day is a new experience for us :D

I hope the taping of the ears gives you the results you want. No matter what happens Luna will still be adorable!
