Ear Gluing
pics and directions submitted by Patti Merkt
Ears: The ears should be set high in the head, the front inner edge of each ear joining the outline of the skull at the top back corner of skull, so as to place them as wide apart, and as high, and as far from the eyes as possible. In size they should be small and thin. The shape termed "rose ear" is the most desirable. The rose ear folds inward at its back lower edge, the upper front edge curving over, outward and backward, showing part of the inside of the burr. (The ears should not be carried erect or prick-eared or buttoned and should never be cropped). Some Puppies never have to have there ears glued, but the vast majority will need it around 7-10 weeks.

A word about glueing Bulldogs ears..........You can use DUO eye lash adhesive, Duo (by Maybelline) is an eyelash adhesive you can find in the make up aisle~ or ~You can use jiffy sew glue or hair glue found at sally beauty supply.  However you should not try this unless you are experienced in glueing ears.  Have a experienced person help you do this.


Ear Wash
article submitted by Susan Somers
This is a recipe for a great ear wash solution we were given from a few fellow dog show groomers. It is cheap, works well and neutralizes the PH and bacteria that can collect in the ear canal.
In a squirt bottle mix equal parts of:
50%-Apple Cider Vinegar
50%-Rubbing Alcohol
Pour on to a square cotton pad or directly into the ear canal. Wipe debris away.
