Is there anything that can be done to make my dogs ears flop??? When we first got here both her ears were like half flopped. Then with time one is standing straight up and the other flops a bit. If I bend em the flop for a few seconds and then slowly start to pop up. Will they drop with age????

There is no way to know if his ears will flop back....You could crop them but at this age it would be a very painful procedure for him :cry: I have heard of gluing ears but I have no idea how sucessful it is..Personally for me my dog is a pet so I would just let her ears do what they wish, my friend has a pit with bunny ears and it adds a lot of character , it is so cute....

.Here is a link for you to check out for gluing ears

Thanks for the advice. I do not plan on doing anything like cropping or glueing. I was thinking along the lines of maybe massaging them down daily etc..... Don't get me wrong, the one ear up and one half down is adorable!! i guess she will also grow into em. right now the one ear that sticks up looks like a satellite LOL.

Massaging them down daily may help. You have to be consistent though, do it every day, two or three times if you can. May not help, but it certainly won't hurt to try. He's adorable, by the way! :D

When puppies are teething, thier ears can do all sorts of goofy things. Chances are as your pup matures they will set themseleves. If you want to speed up the process, you can massage them the way you want them..but, as was stated, you need to be consistant and do this a few times a day to really get it to work.

Those big ears really are cute, don't see many with the "up" ears, even if one is floppy.
The pics of ODIN showed he has ears just like that. One up and one floppy.
Orson has one ear that sometimes flops forward instead of back, it's funny! :lol:

Tank too. i used to flip it back but it came forward again. it's because he slept on it. my girlfriend wanted to iron it back to normal cause it looked funny, lol.

p.s. she really didn't mean to iron his ear. :roll:
