Just wondering...those of you that have cropped dogs....how long did you tape for? King is five months today and his ears are standing but are very floppy....are they done or should I keep taping? Is it normal for dobes to still need tapings at this age or is it not going so well. I take him for a follow up tomorrow but just wanted to hear everyone elses opinions.
GotHusky2 - When he's relaxed, his ears should bend (not really the right word) just like Echo's do. At five months, I'd keep taping for a little while, because of the teething issue. While he's teething a good portion of the calcium in his body is going to bones and teeth. I had my dobe on calcium during that time frame. She happened to love cottage cheese (high in calcium) and her ear muscles needed calcium too.
