they mostly get them cut because it looks cool and it looks like a mean, viscious dog, even though they are NOT! but i recommend it ONLY if you like the look, otherwise, leave em alone and dont bother it hahaha :)

The ears are cropped to breed standards and helps prevent ear infections! Our vet let us look in a couple of our dogs ears so we could see the difference between the floppy ears and cropped ears, there is a huge difference. The cropped ears are much cleaner! We highly recommend cropping!

My dobies ears are natural and have never been dirty. We rarely clean them, maybe twice a year. Personally I think cropping ears is cruel and totally unecessary. My vet refuses to do them now because he thinks it's cruel also. In fact Europe even banned it. They look so much cuter with natural ears anyway! They are plenty intimidating without their ears cropped too. Our dobie is large, black, muscular and shiny with floppy ears. Strangers are always wary of him and our friends always comment on how much they love his floppy ears.
