  • natural ears that go wack

    Lately, I've been curious on the topic of natural Dane ears. My 1-year-old Dane as she grew developed ears that refuse to lay flat. This surprised me because she is about 50% Euro which gives her a European style head which is usually complemented with heavy natural ears that lay down. One of her brothers has ears that lay down so I just became curious about the genetics that goes with this.

    All depends on the individual dog...some dogs even in the same litter have better ear carriage than others,,, (just a side note for educational purpose there is no "Euro" ... the standard is virtually the same regardless of country of origin..a Dane is a Dane .The term "Euro" is a sales gimmick used by irresponsible breeders. The heavy "hyper-type" are not bred to standard and are not well bred)

      Also, you can try taping natural ears down to train them to lay correctly. Basically attach tape from the tip of one ear to the tip of the other under the chin, one piece of tape on each side and stick them together for the bridge underneath so it doesn't stick to anything else. Super easy.
