All Posting methods are effective. The major factors that matter with sucessful ear posting is the time when they are cropped and if nutrition is suffiecent to support the cartalidge growth. We suggest adding a spponful of yogurt to your puppies food.
The Basics of ear care: *** KEEP EARS CLEAN AND DRY*** *Check ears twice a day (morning and night) *** KEEP EARS CLEAN AND DRY*** -Clean ears with a dry Q tip Ears should be odorless DO NOT POST OR WRAP FRESH CROPPED EARS UNTIL STITCHES ARE REMOVED AND 100% HEALED. If you see green or yellow discharge those are signs of infection. Use bottled water and table salt or a saline solution and q tip to do a gentle scrub then completely dry ears.
If it is raining and you need to walk your puppy who was just cropped, take a grocery bag and cover the ears and tie under the chin, remove as soon as back inside, inspect ears to make sure the did not get wet. NO BATHS UNTIL EARS ARE COMPLEATLY HEALED, WE BABY WIPE PUPS DURING THIS TIME.
Many differnt methods:
Mole foam posts
It is important to check the bottom of the post because moisture is often absorbed. This method is recommended if wears are not healed 100% this is a alternative to posting with out wrapping the ears.

Traditional method: Must be careful with newly cropped ears the posting process can retain moisture and infection. This is not recommended how ever if your puppy is sensitive to tape I would recommend this method.
Always clean ears before posting. Never go to deep into puppies ear, you can dammage their hearing.
Optional use baby powder to keep ears clean and fresh.
This Method is used by Danes, works good for Dobes to! this method allows for ears to air out after fresh crop which is great! Make sure you don't have any exposed sharp edges in your puppy’s ear. Make sure to keep puppies stitches clean and moist with Neosporin. You can rub with a warm cloth to clean they will appreciate it. This method is best for LONG show ears.
Incerts- My personal favorite method. They can stay in for a week or so. Make sure you give you puppy things to chew on it will help strengthen ears and reduce time posting.
