They flipped again and now BOTH are down. I'm trying not to stress anymore. I can't believe how back and forth (or should I say up and down) they have been

sourdough44 Here is Mya at 13 or so weeks. Her ears hardly ever come down. They do do the 'Yoda' thing when she is resting.

jewels04 I'm in the same boat, waiting to see what my 4 month old baby's ears will do. They were standing good than one day her right ear just flopped right back over on us. Our almost 2 year old male has soft ears though and I love them so either way it doesn't matter where her ears go.

Jax08 chew bones...lots of them to help strengthen the muscles. Call your breeder and see if any other puppy owner is having issues. If they haven't stood at all by this age, I would discuss taping with the breeder.

brightspot His ears will go up and down and sideways and backwards until he is done teething - 5 or 6 months. They'll be fine!

HarleyTheGSD Taping ears are supposed to keep the ears erect, this way, the cartilage will grow into the erect ears, keeping them erect. Sometimes the ears will go up naturally, sometimes they need help. I would recommend taping if his ears don't come up after four months. I know plenty of GSD owners who taped their dogs' ears, and they went up just fine.
