    Help with Euro ears!

    So i just got my new boy name Ivan. Hes a Full Euro Blue dane. My first Full Euro. I have a 2 year old 50% euro/american. Well my new boys ears were cropped a week ago and he has sooooo much skin that his ears keep falling forward. I kept redoing the bridge so the bridge catches the bump in his head but there is so much skin! He also doesnt control them himself too well. Will this pass with his growth?? Im terrified his ears wont stand. My other boy was easy. His ears stood in a few months. Please help!!!!

    My euro female had the same thing happen. LOL. She looked like a charging bull. Don't worry, they just need to start using them muscles to hold them up. Here is my girl now. Don't worry!

    He's so cute! Are you using backer rod?

    Do the tape bridge and try buying vet wrap, and put two slits in it for the ears and loosely wrap under the dogs chin. I did that with mine when they did that, and it worked great and she didn't mind it. Now I tape with no bridge on so her ears get stronger.

    I even taper the post so that the post sits deep in the ear. Still doesn't help, the extra skin makes sense though. Zeke is 3/4 Euro.

    Beautiful Danes though!
    Thanks!!!!

    Also, you can try using a "hard bridge" (using backrod across) rather than a tape bridge

    Difficult to say for sure from that picture, but it looks like you may not be taping close enough to the base of his ear. Looks like you are starting the tape too far up the ear. Pull as far up as you can before taping and tape as close to the base of his ear. I always start my first piece of tape from the top of the head so I can make sure it is at the lowest possible placing. What type of tape are you using?

    The falling forward...or even backwards is not a problem. As his head grows and the skin on top his head tightens up, it will fix itself.
