It's cruel. Leave your dog's ears alone ...

People circumcise little boys for either health or religious reasons. That's not the case when clipping dogs ears. It's done purely for fashion. I get your point though. :)

when do you crop a doberman ears? 

Name: lindalu | Date: Nov 18th, 2007 11:54 PM
Athena, you would want to do it as young as possible. The older the dog, the less chance the ears will stand. After about 14 weeks they will not stand properly.

It depends on how you care for the ear and who clips the ears as to how the ears will perk. anything under 12 weeks is to young to clip. Call your vet and ask them what they recommend.

Your chances are great of having one or both ears flop if they are not done at an early age, the problem is some vets wont perform surgery under a certain age. I have seen many dogs that have one ear standing and the other flopping. The reason for it is ....one of two things. One...they were not properly taken care of or two they were done at an older age. Due to the Dobermans ears being such a high cut they are especially prone to having a floppy ear or two. But as T-rabbit suggested consult your vet.

Dobermans cuts are different from a Pitt or a Rottweiler. Pitts and Rotts typically have a shorter cut, they are left with very little cartilage. The Doberman has a higher cut leaving more cartilage to flop over.

I am aware of the cut same as the show cut for boxers and great dane. If you don't take care of them till a good 3 months after they will flop. As the handler you need to massage them to help them stand. P.S Rotts don't have clipped ears.;-)

T-rabbit, Lol!!! Hahahaha! holy crap I did say Rotts I cant believe I said Rotts. After I read your reply I had to reread what I said. Lol!!!!

My Doberman doesn't have the show cut he has the medium cut (military cut) I don't really like the show cut, I think they are to big. 

Name: T-rabbit | Date: Nov 19th, 2007 8:54 PM
Thats a great cut when they are done right. I never have liked any show crop they make the dogs look like bats. LOL 

Name: lindalu | Date: Nov 19th, 2007 10:16 PM
In my opinion the medium is the best for the Doberman, thats if you don't plan to show. Vanders came out perfect!

wear do i clip my doggs ears 

Name: tarah | Date: Jun 4th, 2008 2:44 PM
it does hurt them when it is first done but as long as u do it when the r young it heals better and is only sore for like the first few week . and on the age thing the young the better because the get older there ears break over so its harder to get them to stand and look right. but make sure if u do it to tell the vet how u want it dont because there r different styles of cropping.

ok...you can circumsize babies but you cant crop a dogs ears ... yall are idiots 

Name: jazzyj | Date: Jul 12th, 2008 6:06 AM
I have a boxer puppy and i have elected to keep the ears natural not because I thought it was cruel but I am finding that most vets are not performing the procedure. I would have to drive two hours to a vet that will perform the ear crop. The price of the procedure plus gas makes her floppy ears look just fine.

I have seen many Boxers with their ears intact, if fact here it is quite common not to crop the ears of a Boxer.

They can be cropped however if you wait to much longer the cartilage in the ear may harden making it difficult to get a nice short cut. Also I wouldn't recommend you do it your self., take him/her to a qualified vet that has experience in ear cropping.

its not suppose to be attractive to you they have clipped dogs ears for years 

Name: robert | Date: Jan 19th, 2009 8:49 PM
it does not matter weather you are useing the dog for work or not danes and boxers need there tails docked if you dont they can get injurys from the corners of your walls and things they bleed and get real nasty so that would be more painful in the long run for the dog

What is the best method of getting your dogs ears clipped? 

Name: Natalie | Date: Apr 26th, 2009 5:25 PM
honestly i think it is very cruel to do that myself since thats the way the breed is i think it would be wrong to misshape that. dont do it to the poor dog. if u are taking care of it it should be your decision not his.
