The first 3 videos show me actually taping See See’s ears. The 4th video is extra tips for success. See See’s right ear is “breaking” over, creating a crease which can be permanent, causing the ear to never stand properly. Truth is, it might stand on its own, but I want to make sure. ItContinue reading “Videos of actual taping of ears”
Winston is half brother to puppies. He is the only puppy I kept from Jane’s first litter. He is also the best babysitter ever.
Believe it or not, See See’s ears are still standing! I took the tape off Friday morning. They looked great at the show that day, and she won over Clyde, and then got second in the Puppy Herding Group competition! Winston got 2 points toward his championship (15 is needed and he now has 6)Continue reading “Those ears again, and How did we do at the show?”
See See’s left ear tape got messed up, and the ear started to lean way in, probably because I let Winston babysit her. They must have played a little too hard. So, I took the tape off that ear, which happened to be the one that had stopped standing on its own. And guess what?Continue reading “Re-taping See See’s ears”
The Jane and Cash litter of 2/6/2021 turned 4 months old yesterday. Time to start thinking about taping ears. The female I kept, See See, did have both ears up, but one has flopped back down. I am showing her this Friday in a puppy show, so I decided to tape today. Unfortunately, I hadContinue reading “Taping 4 month old GSD Ears”
This is Pony, although he has a new name now. He is with his Golden Retriever buddy all crammed onto a recliner. He’s got a nice dark face! And his feet are bigger than the Golden’s! Many of Jane’s puppies went to homes with children of all ages, other dogs, and other pets, including horsesContinue reading “Reclining Together”
This video illustrates how a GSD Puppy’s ears might look at just under 4 months of age. Especially note how sometimes this puppy’s right ear is flat and pointed hard backwards, and sometimes it is flopping. The left ear is up nicely. This is all within the range of normal in my experience, especially basedContinue reading “GSD Puppy Ears”
At two years old, Winston’s temperament is superb. He is a half brother to Clyde and See See, who are 16 weeks old. He does a great job of playing gently with them, and they learned how to be respectful of a larger dog from their mother Jane.
A couple of the puppies that went to homes in the Richmond area came over on Saturday for some informal training. We worked on walking on a leash and coming when called. Of course, we had to have play sessions! My two short coats, Clyde and See See, got to play with Chief (formerly knownContinue reading “Puppy training”
