Default A question about fly away ears

Monty has had the cutest ears since we got him. However the past few days I have noticed his ears are flying. He looks so goofy! If I massage them, they have a good chance at going back to the way they were right? The dorito shape . Is there any videos showing me the correct way to do it?

TAPING THE NATURAL EAR - taping the ear

MASSAGING THE NATURAL EAR - massaging the ear


you can tape or masage the natural ear to make them lay correctly. Please see the above links. The ears will go thru wonky stages thru teething.

I would like to know this too. Rocky has one wonky ear (right ear) that just never seems to lay right.

It depends on how the cartiledge grows. The best thing to do it massage and or tape during this stage - this give the dog an increased change that his/her ears will lay nice and flat to the head.

Without doing this, the ears could become wonky and never lay nice. Its all on how you prefer the look of the natural ear to be.

Hannah, how long do I leave the tape on for and how long do I keep taping his ears? A few months? Is it a special tape?

When taping Ries' ears we left it on for 2 days took it off for 1 day. But hers held for that 1 day but some wont hold more then a couple hours. We ended up having to do it for a couple months, 90% of the time they lay nicely now. And you are going to have to find what tape works for you but we used hockey tape.
