Sorry to pick on the pictures above but this thread is educational and do not take it the wrong way.....

That dog pictured above is when a crop goes wrong. See how the ear is leaning and standing up correctly on it's own? That is from a lack of proper taping, the ears have to be trained to stand up correctly or you will get crops that look like that. I have had to tape ears as long as about 7 weeks to get them to stand correctly and some just do it on it's own each dog and crop is different. If you just want cropped ears and do not care how they turn out then I guess it is ok but if I am going to spend that kind of money I want them to look correct and I also show my dogs.

You can have the best crop job in the world but if you do not do proper after care they can look like crap and not turn out right, you have no one to blame but yourself for not taping properly. Just something for you to think about.

IMO I would NOT use the hard plastic cones they hurt the dog and can cause the ears to eal incorrectly because they push on the ears. My suggestion is to get a soft cone like this. I use these on all my crops now and they work wonders. I am taking 4 dogs in next week to get cropped and I have bough soft cones for all of them. I too have to drive 3 hours to get the ears cropped then 3 hours back.

Too be honest, I would just take in all the information your given now, and leave them natural, then in the future when your older, and have more funds have your next dogs ears cropped. The maintenance on taking care of the ears afterwards is just as important and time consuming as the procedure itself. But if you are going to have it done regardless, definitely keep getting as much info as possible from Lisa, PerformanceKennels.
She has dealt with a lot of dogs and can help you to find a place that works and has doctors that know what they are doing.
Good luck

OOPs!!

Well performanceknls no offense taken, I did forget to mention that the prior picture was before the taping since I did let the ears heal completely before taping. Boi did need taping after a few weeks after the crop and cone since the plastic cone does tend to push the ears down and makes the ears tip face inwards. I used the cone since I couldn't watch Boi 24/7 because on my previous puppy just would scratch everytime I wasn't near him, which made the after care very difficult IMO. I did let the ears heal prior to the taping on Boi so I didn't want to reopen any wounds. I wish I would've known of that Vet Recovery Collar. None of the pet stores or Vets mentioned that collar to me. So Nizmosmommy it's your dog and do what you like with it. If you go natural then you can't go wrong, but if you do crop just be patient and prepared for the after care. Good LUCK and hope to hear from you soon. Hope other members can provide more info. Taping and after taping in PIX.

There you go! See that is what I am talking about they need to be taped in many cases to get them to stand properly. I know people who use mole skin but I guess I am just use to taping since that is how I have always done it. Thanks for the after pictures that is exactly what I was talking about and yes the soft cone is a life saver with cropped ears. When the crop starts to heal they will start to itch and why the collar is so important. If they scratch too hard they can become infected or the stitches can come out and your healing time is longer. we have many good threads about taping ears do a search on ear crop and taping.

ASK YOUR VET FOR A LIST OF REFERENCES YOU CAN CONSULT, AS WELL AS PHOTOS

You can tell it's a good vet if they seem appreciative of all your questions... There's quite a few you'd be surprised who are only in it for cashflow
