Dogs/5 month old German Shepherd ears


Hello, I was wondering if you could help answer a question about my puppies ears.  She is 5 months old whose ears go up constantly OUTSIDE.  They often stay up for long periods of time; but again....OUTSIDE.  When she is in the house, they are rarely up.  Can you offer any thoughts as to why that would be and/or advice to keep they up?

Thank you much.

Hi Laura,

I'm afraid I have no idea about this. My expertise is in dog nutrition. This would be a great question for a shepherd forum that you can find on the internet. These people have and raised all kinds of shepherds and should be able to shed some lite on this for you.

Here is a link to one I found

If you should have any diet questions for your dog, I would be happy to help with that. The diet plays a key role in longjevity and keeping them disease free.

If you would like me to evaluate her diet, just respond back to this same question and let me know everything that is in her current diet including brand names.

Let me know if I can do anything else for you,

I am certified in Dog Nutrition. Over 6 years now I've owned a natural pet food retail store. I've worked with hundreds of dogs and there owners to achieve better health. We promote a healthy balanced species related diet. This is the way nature made your pet to thrive. Fortunately for those who cannot or wish not to feed a raw based diet, there are alternatives with supplements and cooked food. Just don't let processed food be there only diet. Food is the most powerful medicine. Heal the core of the animal and the rest will take care of itself. We've turned the lives of many dogs around. There parents come back into the store and comment to us on how there dog acts like a real dog again. Our business is thriving and we continue to help many.

We work with Second Chance Companions, Must Love Dogs, members of ASPCA, HSUSA and started our own personal "Red Head Rescue" (non chartered) for stray dogs and rescue dogs from high kill shelters. We've been able to heal the many health ailments these dogs have and place them in good homes.

Last 7 years I've been working with veterinarians, holistic veterinarians, attending seminars and best of all, real life experience with hundreds of customer dogs and cats. I've seen what works and does not work. Feeding a proper species appropriate diet works for most ailments. We've taken away our petís natural diet and caused most of todayís problems.
