Ears and Ear Cropping
A Doberman’s ears are naturally floppy. Ear cropping is the buyers responsibility and is available for an additional cost.
There are different lengths of ear crops:
Military/Pet Crop: This ear is relatively short in length and has a wider base (bell). It does not typically take very long to stand.
Medium Crop: This ear is a little longer and has a little less bell.
Show Crop: This ear is the longest and a little narrower than the other two crops.
Ear cropping of the Doberman Pinscher is usually done at approximately 8 weeks of age. There is no set amount of time it takes before a puppy’s ears will stand; the average time for taping is approximately 4-5 months. Most pups have their ears up by the age of 6 - 7 months. That said, it isn't unusual for some ears not to stand until the pup is a year old. And some puppies have poor ear leather, which means that the ears won't ever stand perfectly or the tips will curl inward.
There are many methods of aftercare. Doberman ear crops should only be done under the guidance of an experienced Doberman vet. Achieving ears that stand properly requires time and commitment on the part of the owner. Keep the ears dry. If the ears get wet, rewrap them with dry tape. DO NOT take the ears down and let the ears "hang" for any length of time. Buyer picks up their puppy along with medication and instructions on how to care for the puppy after surgery. The suture removal is done 10 days following the surgery. If you choose to have your puppies ears cropped, buyer will be required to call the vet’s office immediately to schedule their appointment and /or have any questions or concerns.
