|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.|

Here are a thread with great pictures of puppy ears.

|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.|

|Fezzik von barry||I feel your pain. I am going through the same concern. Both of my gsd ears were up and out of nowhere one is totally floppy. Please keep us posted|

|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.|

|danieldust||Please don't tape the ears!! It takes a long time until the muscles that keep the ears get activated by the body. Taping will just take the strength away from the muscles and the ears will never come up!|

Thanks for responding! I guess I'm most concerned about the right ear, because it stood halfway up since we got her (the pic below was taken at 10 weeks old).
Then, one morning last week, she came out of her crate and it was flopped down like a Labrador's. It's a little better now, but still nowhere near where it was. I'm paranoid she laid on it wrong and damaged it.
The left ear can stand a little bit, albeit very crookedly! I have high hopes for it.
