Doberman pinscher is born with long drooping ears. The ears are often cut, normally when a puppy is 8 to 12 weeks old. The healing process takes about 10 days, during which points are removed and forming the ears to stand up begins. Dogs are also born with naturally long tails that are anchored shortly after birth.
They often have their ears harvested, as are many other races, a procedure that is functionally related to the type of breed for the traditional duty of custody and effective sound localization. The doberman pinscher ear length is approximately 5 to 9 inches long. Like the coupling of the tail, ear culture is illegal in some countries.
Military culture, also known as the work culture, looks like rounded triangles. Military culture is the easiest ear of culture for ear training to stand up. This type of culture is not done for beauty, but more with the utility in mind.
The show of cultures is often described as “eagle’s wings” because of the long curved shape.This style is used on Doberman which must be exhibition dogs. It takes several months to form spectacle cropped ears to stand. In some dogs, the ears can not stand up after training and sometimes require additional surgery.
The average harvest is more of beauty. The length of the ear height is between show and military culture length. The ear is long and curved and requires a longer training period. The average crop, however, provides better results than the harvest show.
After the stitches are removed, the ears are trained to stand using a half diameter roll of insulating foam pipe cut 6 to 8 inches long, as well as the first helper band. The roller is placed in the ear as far as it will go comfortably. The band is wrapped around the ear and the roller to keep the ear straight. The ears are held together with tape and a roller for two to three months, or until the ears stand up without any help.
Although rare, cropping sometimes causes the ears to develop soft, supple thick cartilage that does not stand up even after training. Puppies that have permanently wet ears after cropping and taping sometimes develop scar tissue and cartilage lose the rigidity needed for strong straight ears.
The master of the Doberman must be ready to invest in the education and socialization of his dog. A defenseless nature dog, a poorly educated Doberman will quickly become painful for his master, his family, and his entourage because he will tend to be suspicious, even aggressive.
If it’s your first dog, the Doberman is not recommended to you. This breed is suitable for an experienced owner who will be firm and patient.
In reality, the Doberman is a dog with a strong temperament, but fundamentally good and loyal. Only unselected individuals from random breeding can be ferocious and aggressive. Dobermans from serious breeding are affectionate family dogs.
