I just got a Yorkie… and at first it was werid to see my dog have droopy ears… then I found out it was natural.
It's 6 months year old, and I was wondering HOW to help the ears stand. And… is 6 months too late?
Plus. where do i cut the hair, so the ears won't be too heavy?
Dogs ears often go up and down as they are teething and she would be at the age where she is teething. If that is the case there is nothing to worry about. If however, they haven't started to stand on there own at all by now they won't at 6 months old trying to tape them probable won't do much good as the cartridge will have already developed a crease.
Note: despite what some have said yorkies are not a cropped breed. Regardless of that he purpose of the actually surgical cropping is to shape the ears and lighten the ear leather. The tapping process afterwards is what makes them stand. This is done and an early age (general 12 wks or earlier)Tags: Yorkie
