Default When did your dogs ears stand up solidly?

Just curious

Rangers ears were up solidly by about 10 weeks. He is my first GSD so I had no idea when his ears would stand up. Furthermore, I really didn't care if they ever stood up because I was raising him for someone else (seeing eye). I had no idea that sometimes they didn't stand up for quite some time. I guess it is kind of ironic that we didn't care and still Ranger's ears were solidly up at 10 weeks.

Riley's was at 5 to 6 months. He had very sturdy ears.

Kaleb, I don't know. They were up when we got him. He was 3 months old.

I think Carly and Sage's were up for good at about 11-12 weeks. Russell still had one going up and down until 7 months.

I think 9-10 weeks. I can't really remember the exact time.

I could not remember either but I had pictures on my iphone and they were dated so I could take a look back and see when they were standing. I had thought it was pretty early but I didn't realize that it was around 10 weeks. I know that The Seeing Eye brings the pups to their puppy raisers at 7 weeks and one of the other puppy raisers told me that sometimes the ears are already up when you get them. I don't remember any of the pups in our puppy club having goofy ears and I saw at least 15 GSD pups in the year that we were associated with the seeing eye.

Thanks to all for responding. It is interesting to see how much variance there is in the timing for the ears standing up. There didn't seem to be much variance in our Seeing Eye puppy club, but I am not sure how much variety there was i the genetic pool. I assume that they were careful not to inbreed but still the genetic pool couldn't have been that big.
