I have a 12 week old bulldog. When I got her at 8 weeks her ears were very floppy. I had them glued into to correct position. They stayed glued for 3 weeks. The glue is off now and her ears look great. I wanted to know if I should glue them again? How long does it usually take? I read that the cartildge hardens in the ear at around 12 weeks. Just wondered if anyone knew anything about the bulldog ear gluing... Thanks
We have to train the Pug puppy ears too, at this age, they are still going through the teething stage, and the ears will continue to go right/wrong/right/wrong. Keep them glued until they are done teething.
i own two bulldogs and have always owned bulldog why are you glueing your dogs ears and what are you gluing your dogs ears with just wondering i know plenty of breeders and no one glues there dogs ears how many bulldogs have you owned?
Never heard of it or seen it before. Not saying it is not a valid method of training your dogs ears but I have always heard that they will naturally form the rose bud look in time. Perhaps I am wrong. My bully had entirely different looking ears as a puppy they finally became "perky" on thier own. First one then the other, within the space of three days. I am not sure I would have even cared had they not.
This is my first bulldog but the man who glued the ears for me raised bulldogs for over 20 yrs. It's hard to tell when they are puppies if the ears will go into the rose shape on their own. If you just wait and see what they will do.It would be too late to correct it. I have seen bulldogs with the ears that do not go back, just always flopping. We use the eye lash glue or the glue used for sticking numbers on cattle. A dog with the rose shape ears get more air flo and less ear problems.
no, unfortunately, they dont always go the right way on their own, and need trained to fold properly. We tape or glue the Pugs, then the Min Pins sometimes need help getting them to Stand....endless, lol
