After all your hard work, it’s time to see some results. If you have taken the proper steps in caring for the ears, there should be no reason your dog’s ears are not up. You already did your due diligence in purchasing your puppy from a reputable breeder, and asked to see pictures of the parents (make sure the parents ears are nice and strong).
The normal age range for the ears of a German shepherd to stand upright is from 4-7 months, but of course there are some that come up quite early or even as late as 8 months. By the 8th month, the ears will usually take on their adult form.
When you purchase a puppy from us, we walk you step by step thru the process of raising a healthy German shepherd puppy. Following the SV guidelines for the German shepherd is our standard that we live by to include; size, training, breeding, etc. Once you get a dog or puppy from Haus Amberg Shepherds, we are there on your journey from start to end and are always available for any of your questions and concerns that you may have. We have years of experience with the GSD and understand what works and does not work for the German shepherd. Every dog breed is difference and what works for one breed may not work for another. Our clients understand this idea, and look to us for our expert advice with great results, whether it’s diet recommendation, training advice or grooming tips.
