LOL I don't blame you! I sent a PM off to Elegy. I know they use breathe right strips... but I don't know what if any glue they use. I heard tear mender is good, but the lady in the video used something harder to find of course.

I taped and glued Arson's ears, sadly acquiring him at 13 months, I didn't win. They stand when he's attentive to something, or excited, so my effort did something, but they flop 50% of the time as I got him too late in life.

I forget the name of the glue that my Dobermans' breeder gave me, but I know many, many people use sewing glue with Breathe Right strips (cause the strips generally don't stay on without glue for long).

I've never personally taped an uncropped dog's ears to stand up, so I can't say how well it works myself, but a lot of people seem to like that method. I was told to get sewing glue for Journey's ears too, but decided tape was much less messy and more convenient for what I want her ears to do (fold forward).

I tape ears, I prefer it to the gluing and strips. I've had good luck with taping.







End result.

I try to get the opposit effect with Logan (tipped ears) but I use Tear Mender glue, which is super cheap at Tractor Supply. I've tried to tape them, but the glue seems to work better. I can definitely see how taping would work better for a dog that needs ears to stand.

I helped Elegy figure out how to glue Bean's ears.

You need breathe right strips and skin bond (available on Amazon for fairly cheap) - simply shave the inner side of the ear flap, apply glue to the sticky side of the strip, and stick the strip in. Here's proper placement:



And end result:

Red Chrome, are those really the end result? I still see a pretty severe crease in the one ear, plus some dipping on both ears (inside edge, near the top) that doesn't look right. I wouldn't call those ears done, IMHO. (I'm not trying to be mean or start anything, just stating my observations, sorry!)

That's the end of taping with a GSD. The little things you see are little and in GSDs, at least these lines, work themselves out after taping is done. The crease wasn't as severe as it seems in the picture.

His ears just a few days ago.


Should add that GSDs go through funny ear stages when they are teething and he is closer to being done to teething now than he was in the picture I posted. But anyway.

I used Stoma glue, that's what the local kennel club people said to look for, took me forever to find it but I did find a local medical supply store that sells it.

Anyway, Enda's ears were supposed to go up on their own, her breeder never had a problem with them before, so much for that when you bring in a new sire I guess, looks like he throws weaker ears, but moving on both of hers fell around 4-5 months old (teething time) one eventually went back up but after two weeks and the other wouldn't I caved and started to tape them both first to a plastic cup, then I found out about the breath right strips and taped them in her ear with masking tape (like the GSD's above), then I went back to the cup after she started to have a reaction to the glue already on the strips, then I went to mole skin with the stoma glue and taped a breath right strip on the outside of the mole skin. This is the progress (ashamed of what her breeder might think, I never took photo's directly of the "stay" glued in her ear, sorry)-

Ears fall


The one that persistently goes back up on it's own


You can kinda see the stay in the right ear


Mostly up on it's own by 8 months


They stand much straighter now that's she's grown into them. But I would use the method again of stoma glue and mole skin/breath right strips. The thing I liked about the stoma glue most is that it peels off easy when it's time to remove it, less fuss makes it easier on them.
