tcass My pup looks like "BATDOG" at 10 weeks when I got him. The breeder said she rubbed the ears with her thumb and forefinger claiming it promoted the cartelage growth. He's got some ears.

voodoogsd my pups ears were just like your pups at 4 months. 90-20. Also, some of the pups ears go down when they start teething but they'll pop back up. Glucosamine & Chondroitin will help their ears as well. sometimes the supplement is expensive but good quality kibbles contain it already (e.g Orijen LBP & Merrick Grain Free Beef, i know for a fact contain it) I've also read that adding some yogurt to their food will also help. I did this also but I dont know if it played a factor in her ears popping up faster.

Shade Each dog is different, Delgado's ears were up when I picked him up at 9 weeks and never went down. Some dogs never stand until 6-8 months, some go up and down constantly for the first few months

I wouldn't start even worrying until 6 months, even then you still have a few months where you can tape or glue them to hopefully help

While I'm personally not a fan of Blue, it's a much better choice then RC. As long as the dog is happy and healthy then you found the right food

Ears...And food

Hello, I am new. My question is ... When does the puppy's ears stand up. Fritz's left ear is 90% there, but his right ear is 25%. How long should I wait? BTW, he is 10 weeks, 18.5 lbs. Also, the vet recommended Royal Canin, but I have him on Blue Wildnerness puppy which has more protein. Is more protein too bad for a puppy?
Thanks, Deb
