    So I am pretty sure Pan has rose ears and I am thinking about tapping them, if it's not too late. He is 11 weeks old. So I need your opinions/advice. Any good resources?

    Thanks guys :)

    Typically, your breeder is going to be a good resource for this. Have you contacted them?

    I'm sure it depends on the type of ear, but normally the ears don't get wonky until teething starts. However, I've only had experience with drop ears so it may be different for other types of ears.

    Here's a great resource for taping ears to fold flat. Great dane specific, but the concept is the same no matter the breed if you are trying for flat ears.
