I've always had boxers and if I got another one I would let the ears stay natural, but in the past, I always had great success with mole foam and skin bond surgical glue. No worries of getting tape to tight. I'm curious about how it's done in shepherds?? I use to cut a piece of mole foam to fit the inner ear and use the surgical glue to hold it in place. Lasted about 5 to 7 days. Repeat and needed. That method was much kinder then taping, to the healing stitches and eliminated the problem of possiblly making the tape to tight and interfering with blood flow.

Thats how it did it. With a heavy ear i had to use the breathright strips for extra strength to keep it erect. There is no harm done doing it this way.
