It does look better. Still a little bulky, but ears do seem to stand a little more natural. Make sure there is at least two finger spaces between the bottom of the ear and the foam roller so the ear doesn't become irritated. Keep ears cleaned and check frequently for circulation problems or infections.
I commend you on putting forth the effort and coming on here asking for assistance. I have the same problem with my GSD right now. It can take months before you see results. Don't give up he is still very young. Our dogs could pass as twins!opinions please-imageuploadedbypg-free1357446234.187752.jpg

Here are some pics of my male with pipe insulation cut to size and glued with Torbot. They've been in for a week. The ears can breathe a lot better like this, and the glue comes off easy once the forms fallout with some adhesive remover.opinions please-imageuploadedbypg-free1357527205.493790.jpgopinions please-imageuploadedbypg-free1357527221.943372.jpgopinions please-imageuploadedbypg-free1357527248.402645.jpg

Thanks! He is 10 months old now and I'm still dealing with the ears being soft. Sometimes a WGSL takes a lot longer. What you feed them is important during this time. Making sure they have something to chew on to work the muscles at the back of the jaw is also key. A lot of work and constant repetition. Hopefully since they are show lines the efforts will pay off, if not he is still one the best GSD's I have ever owned.

opinions please

The moleskin padding has been in Karuk's ears for about two weeks now. They look so much better. The moleskin is just now starting to come out.
From now on moleskin is the only thing I am ever going to use on my dogs ears!
He went from this to: opinions please-imageuploadedbypg-free1360468316.009886.jpg
