how old is your puppy? don't worry, they'll do the ear dance for awhile. one up, one down, both up, both down. my boy was 5 months when they were up for good. he's now 9 months (as of March 4th). oops, one just went down.
No need to think about taping ears until 20 weeks. Between now and then they may go up and down a lot, especially when they are teething.
If the ears are UP at some point (sometimes around 10-12 weeks they go up and look like a teepee on top of their head!) then chances are good that they will go up again all by themselves after teething.
hmm. they perked up when he was a little over 8 weeks and have been up and down one at a time ever since...i believe that they do this until they are finished teething..im no expert but i think thats one of the big reasons there ears do wut they do
Boy am I glad to hear that!
The youngest GSD I have ever had previously was 6 months old and ears were up. I got Mack, AKA Young Butthead at 5 weeks. He's 10 weeks now and a few weeks ago both ears were straight up. Last week the left ear went down and the right ear stayed up. Yesterday they both were down. I was worried for a while, I never knew about the "ear dance"! I had always heard "ears up, balls down".
