Give him a chewable that lasts a long time. Take him out at night a lot because they are more alert at night and use their ears to point towards strange sounds. Make him really use those ears. It's not too late.

Anyone know? Loss of hormones with already weak ears
Good question. It affects bones and growth, not sure if it would have an impact on cartilage.

He does have back molars coming in also. I will keep taping and checking every 7 days.

i can't help other than a tip. people don't count in weeks past 8 unless they are a pregnant female. i have no clue what 29 weeks is. sure i can divide but who likes to? nobody.

hope the ear goes up. that's why it took over a year to find my last puppy. i needed a good breeder with pups with ears up and ready to sell at 8 weeks. even my pup before that, half the litter was ears up and half down. i picked the most ambitious/wandered off more with ears up. i could be wrong but it the are up at 8 weeks, they sometimes go down again and back up at teething but you know they'll go back up.
