Also question is, do corgi's ears stand up naturally?
Corgis have big, upright ears whichsomebreeders tape to encourage them to stand up.Youngcorgi pups don't have upright ears, they havedropears. As they grow and develop, the ears begintorise, starting at around eight weeks of age, althoughtheears of some pups will remain flat.
Secondly, at what age can you tape a dog's ears? Do not tape up his earstoosoon. It is recommended to wait until after yourGermanshepherd puppy's adult teeth have started to come in(around3 to 5 months) to tape up his ears.
