Ears are usually cropped at 7-10 weeks old. My understanding is that you can't get them to stand if they have been hanging natural for months. It took our doberman girl's ears months to stand and she was cropped at 7 weeks, out of tape at about 8 months and out of breath rites by 9 1/2 months. She has a long show crop. They do look fantastic. The hard work was well worth it. Check with a vet that does crops (not all do them) and see if it is at all possible, but I really think it is probably to late.

We have been raising dobies for many years. We do NOT crop the ears. Overseas such as England, the dog has to be born that way. Which is rare. These dogs need the long ears.. When people crop their ears its only for appearance. Its no longer recommended, because it is cruel to the dog.. I use my dobies for tracking. The long ears gather the sense of smell around the nose area...The long ears do NOT stop them from doing their jobs/or being quite loving and trusting.. Please don't crop their ears....
