An upright ear is healthier...so I'd tape if I were you. You might be able to go back to the breeder and have them do it, many breeders know when they have "softer ears" and have had plenty of practice taping puppy ears for their potential show dogs.

An upright ear tends to dry out faster, and it prevents yeast and other infections. They tend to stay cleaner as well.
