I know a lot has been said about natural ears but i have a few questions.

1. how many people actually massaged their dogs ears... dungy doesnt really like it
2. Like 2 days ago they were perfect and now they are all over the place... what r the chances of them going back to normal

I have been on that site that shows how to massage them, but i am stupid i guess and dont really understand the pics so i am really hoping they will go back to normal w/o massage or taping... i mean in the end idc how they are but he is extra cute w/ those natural ears lol.


any help or explanation on what everyone did would be fantasmic!!!

I've always got Hoos by the ears. He usually just falls over onto my leg and has even gone to sleep! I remember when I noticed that he had "ear control". All of a sudden they where just "up". THe flop all over the place, but he pulls them back when I come in for the face rub or ear massage

I don't massage Ringer's ears to keep them floppy but I do massage them every once in a while and he loves it.

Heather, that would be awesome...Even tho I can't watch it, it still would be helpful for everyone else....I massage both Samson's & Angel's ears, they just love it. You can feel them just relax as you do it....

I *try* to massage Jetta's...I have to catch her when she is asleep...otherwise she won't sit still long enough for me to do it and she'll try to play instead

I have been massaging for awhile now, then the other morning I did the electrical tape thing and that worked great.  I left them taped from about 6 a.m till noon on tuesday morning.  When I removed the tape, some hair came off, but not too much.  I have noticed in the past two days his ears when forward, hanging in the normal position.  He still likes to pull the back when he's excited, but when resting they look normal.

try using painters tape or masking tape instead of electrical tape...its a little less sticky, but still gets the job done. :)

I don't do anything with Ty's ears, you can see by his pictures, he has goofy ears!  I love them!  They are always flapping, inside out, pused back etc.  It's really funny!!
