TAPING EARS: - The ears start to stand up approximately
between a broad range of 6 to 16 weeks. Sometimes the ears will rise up on
their own for smaller corgis with smaller ears. However, most medium size
corgis and large corgis with bigger ears will need assistance and help to
get the ears to stand up.

spurts throughout the first 16 weeks of life having the ears come up and then

calcium intake drops, as the puppy is no longer getting the added vitamins from
To help the issue we give the puppy some milk and or cheese every day for
1-2 weeks and or choose a specific supplement along with other great vitamins,
such as Missing Link, Liperderm, and or flavorless Geletin. It's very
important to feed a quality dog food that contains a good nutritional balance
while they are being weaned. The
beginning start of life is very important for their over-well being, and for
the benefits of the ears.
We also tape the puppy's ears up as they should look. After 3-5
days remove the tape, the ears will be a tiny bit floppy but should stand up
now. If the ears still aren't standing up, then repeat the process for another
3-5 days. Please remember to give the ears 2 to 3 days of rest in between each
taping. Also minimizing activities with other pets help, as the rowdy
play can sometime knock down the ears. Below
are some example photos for your review.
Another way to tape the ears across.
