my gal is now 6mos old.
she had teething almost three weeks ago.
one time around 4months i saw both ears were up for few days then went back down.
now one ear is up for about more than a month or so.
but the other one is quater up and remained there until now.

do you think it will be up since one is up already?
or should i do taping?

how long would it take the other to be up any informations would be really great.

thanks

When do the ears go up and do they all need help or do most just happen?

You should start taping them now as soon as you can. Never take anymore risks.


Mine has one up and one down at 5 1/2 months. I taped them last week. Still taped atm.

I am worried just for looks. I want a shepherd that looks like a shepher. Not that it is a HUGE deal but I am worried.

Erect ears are part of the breed standard--which simply means that's what a GSD is supposed to look like. A dog with soft ears can still be a great dog in all other ways...but it's just one of those physical differences that makes a GSD a GSD and not a coonhound, or something else.
