critterlady Thank you, so far so good, I haven't noticed any skin irritation from the adhesive and he doesn't seem to mind them being in his ears, so we're going ahead with it, I didn't mind his floppy ears, but when I saw the sores on the creases I knew I had to do something!

LynnPritchard You can do this! Another member and I spent weeks talking on the site and then ultimately on the phone and directly via email, and we have both of our dogs with their ears fully erect. It's a laborious process, but it works!! If you read through all of the posts on this particular site/link, you will see our thoughts and process. She did one way and I did another, but we both achieved success. Please feel free to call me directly on my cell if you like. I'm sure that the other member would be happy to help you as well: Lynn Pritchard 804-241-3053. Good luck and persevere!

critterlady Thank you for posting this video! I'm going to try this on my 9mo old gsd Zeus, I couldn't find the tape you used, I saw someone else post they were using moleskin since they couldn't find the tape, so I used moleskin. Zeus got a sore on the outer part of his ear where it creases and now has a scar from it, the inner part of his other ear got sore at the crease, my vet told me to use antibiotic ointment and there wasn't much else to do, so I hope this works! Zeus' ears have been up and down, but never for very long, I've included some pictures of him prior to applying the fix and after, really praying this works!

workingk9_Ohio Thanks so much for this! I just got a 20 month old bitch and her left ear will go up sometimes, but is usually down, like the first pic of your girl. I'm going to give this a go.

Both ears are still bouncy when he runs, and maybe that will improve or not. He looks great though, and your general plan is what got us moving in the right direction. Thanks for your wonderful help!
That's a great job Lynn, I'm so happy for you I think with more and more time, it should get a lot stronger. Keep us updated

Mickeynads Hi all how is everything going with the ears? Enakai seems even better now. Her ear appears to be stronger and stronger. Here are some pics of her this morning running and we stopped using the tape for almost a month now

Thanks! I plan on keeping it in. He's teething pretty bad last few days a lot of teeth missing and bloody gums
