Default gluing or taping ears

I would like to know if you had to what would you do and why I read a lot on different websites that gluing is better and other sites that taping is better let me know what you think.

I glued my dog's ears. They didn't stand until he was 9 months old, even with gluing them.

When Tony was a puppy I used to take him to dog parks every day. Everyone wanted to pet his ears, knowing that the constance petting would break down the cartage, I curt a foam hair curler down the long way then taped them up before going to the park. Everyone then would just pet the top of his head. Worked great, but you have to use easy tape.

Default None of the Above

I've never had to do either, but if I did, I'd say go with taping.

At what age would it be "time" to tape or glue? By the time they're 8-9 months?

Neither, bubbles ears stay up by themselves. If one flops down I just give her a dairy treat like yogurt and her ears are back up in the morning. Yogurt is yummy and glue/tape rips hair out it's not hard to choose.

I'd never put glue or tape on my puppy .

Neither. Let their ears do their own thing in their own time.
