My Belgian Malinois just gave birth to 8 pups. They are 1 month and 4 days old now or apporixmately 5 weeks old. Is it normal that their ears are not yet erected? Is it safe to tape their ears?

Hi. I have a Malinois who will be 11 years old on June 10, 2012. I've had her since she was a pup and her little ears were floppy, too. I never taped them and they stand up beautifully on their own. I wouldn't worry. :-)

I wouldn't tape their ears. Mine was four months old before his ears became erect.

Ears do not normally become erect until after teething has mostly completed - do not tape before 8 months.
